Let All Who Share

Original German Text by J. A. Cramer

Music by Ron Klusmeier
English Translation by Fred Kaan

Lyrics as Poetry

Let all who share one bread and cup remember
the oneness of that host of countless number,
of those who are, as children of the Creator,
whose love attends us.

If only we would live as sisters, brothers,
put faith to practice, truly care for others,
then we would do the will of him who sends us,
so long awaited.

Use for yourself our highest and profoundest,
so that, O God, with everyone around us,
we may enjoy a world in Christ united
part of each other.

Comments About Song

Author Fred Kaan, from his book

“I was commissioned to translate a German hymn based on a J. A. Cramer text (1723-1788) — ‘Das sollt Ihr, Jesu Junger, nie vergessen’ for Cantate Domino where it is given with a melody LOBET DEN HERRN UND DANKT IHM, composed by Johann Cruger (1598-1662).”
