Notes: While this song may appear intimidating, a well planned introduction will make it immediately accessible. Introduce the refrain with a solo voice or an ensemble. Have the congregation join in singing this several times, adding percussion instruments, until all is firmly established. The rhythm comes to a halt at the singing of the stanzas. Introduce each phrase with a rolled chord on the keyboard, and accompany with improvisation on shakers and cymbals. A solo voice could sing all of the stanzas, or the congregation may be invited to join beginning on st. 2. It is not necessary that the syllables move precisely together for the stanzas. At the final measure of the stanzas, the percussion should fall into place, establishing the pulsing rhythm of the refrain.
