The Church of the Unlikely

*** Two Bible stories provide the background to this hymn: the choice of David (the eighth choice) to be king, in 1 Samuel 16.1-13; and, by spreading mud in his eyes, Jesus’ giving sight to a man born blind, in John 9. The hymn is therefore a meditation on Jesus’ saying the first shall become last, and the last first.

Worshiping congregations might think it appropriate  to offer this hymn with as little dignity as possible!
