Description:

In Rory’s words: “The ‘conceit’ of this lyric is that the stranger met is God encountered.... the one who is the ‘outsider’ to us has something to teach us about love, about self-abandonment, about who God is.” The assembly will be able to join in after the melody is introduced by a soloist and/or the choir on the first two or three stanzas.

String quartet part is optional.
