O Jesus Who Traveled

During Holy Week, many churches read extended passages of the Gospels which share stories of Jesus’ last days. We remember the gifts that Jesus offers us while also recalling the many people and systems that betray him. This text can be a companion on that journey, with the verses being interspersed with readings if desired. The questions in each verse invite us to consider our own role in the story, collectively and individually, past and present.

I am honored that Sally Ann Morris wrote a beautiful original tune for this text called TRAVELER. It could also be sung to I WONDER AS I WANDER.

Thanks to Brian Hehn of The Hymn Society of the United States and Canada who highlighted this hymn in his recent “Coffee & Hymns” video about new hymns for Lent. Watch (and listen!) here:
