We know this song from our green book, but with a different tune. This is the original version! John Bell used to write a short hymn to celebrate young people at the end of two years of inner-city service, similar to our Episcopal Service Corps. Bell intended them to be sung and not published. This one got out and became quite popular. First four verses are the questions from Jesus; last verse is our affirmation. Peace.
