Och weel, Jim, had ye stayed in Dibley you'd hae sung it oft enough.

Maybe there's a cultural thing about hymnody too, that and that this has been a firm favourite of mine since childhood? I've always especially loved the end of the first verse with its trust that one step at a time is good enough... and more than that, is sufficient and complete.


and if you were in bloomsbury you would sing it too - though to be fair, we haven't sung it much recently. But I love it, mostly for the reasons you list. I learned it when we sang it regulary at Dublin St (we sang it a lot - wonder what that means!) and so I discovered it in my teens. It mattered a lot then, and still does.Glad to see the reason why so well expressed
