This text, indicated as "anonymous Chinese, ca. 1935," appears in a Chinese hymnal, but it is there paired with a different melody than the one used in this setting.  The Chinese folk melody employed here also appears in the same hymnal, but with a different text.  They seem, however, particularly well suited to each other, the ancient pentatonic melody carrying the text with graceful buoyancy.  Also available for mixed choir: C-25.
