433 - Lord, You Give the Great Commission

Tune: Abbot's Leigh

I know it says that "a selection of stanzas may be chosen", but this is such a terrific hymn, why would you not just sing the whole thing.  The music is beautiful and the text is pithy and well-crafted.

And I know it says that the music is available in a lower key, but D-flat is such a wonderful, warm key -- it's not the same in C major, which is brighter but also somewhat pedestrian.  Sing it up in D-flat, it'll do you good.
