Part 2 can be done in a variety of ways:
- everyone sings all
lines quickly, one after another
- each line can be sung
by a different group
- males can sing the
first part of each line, females the other half
(or vice versa) in a call and response pattern
- small groups can come
up with their own lines
each having a two 7 syllable units with the 7th beats rhyming
This song was written for, but is not determined by,
the 2005 Outdoor
Ministries Resources curriculum developed by
the Committee on Outdoor Ministries of
the National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA.
for use at Shepherd's Spring Outdoor Ministries Center.
Other camps are most welcome to use it.
The merengue style was inspired by
with a sister church in the Dominican Republic.
(As an "Anglo," rhythm-challenged, older white guy,
this is about as close as I get to this style)
