610 - Before I Take the Body of My Lord

Tune: Laying Down

When I received a copy of Common Praise hot off the press, this is the first hymn I looked for, to see if they had included it. What a fantastic text -- profound and thought-provoking; and the music is truly beautiful (especially for a minor key [as you know, I'm not a big fan of minor key hymns (me and Mrs Schuller)]).
