I believe it was written in Australia and Kaze had a hand in it and/or knows
the young man who wrote it -- I believe he was a musician from San

Yes, the tune, and also the words, who wrote them? -- this was one of the
new religious mode songs, eh?  

I visited the Lutheran church here in Chester on Sunday, about 12 people in
attendance.  The organist did not show up, so we sang "favorite hymns"
Joyful, Joyful was one selected.  The gospel was the one about Jesus walking
on the water in a storm and Peter saying, if it is you, command me to come
out to you and losing his nerve and sinking and Jesus grabbing him and
asking, "What made you lose your nerve like that?"
