I didn’t think of it that way at first. I admit to skepticism on it. The director who worked with me on the children’s choir in my last parish liked it, and so it entered the mainstream repertoire of both school and parish.
Over ten or more years, it has grown on me. I think the very personal lyrics are off-putting to some, but they reflect a sincere desire for union with God. At the end of the last verse, a burst of Ignatian single-mindedness:
Lord, just always let me thy servant be.
And that is as Ignatian as anything else in the words.
