Ideas for use
Try establishing a rhythm for children to clap or bang out as the words are sung (see Let the children sing). This is a hymn that almost demands to be sung on the move. Try forming a procession as you sing – maybe the children can parade around the congregation; or maybe this can be used as hymn to march out to or during an open-air event.
