This is a processional song used by women in Camaroon, West Africa.  The song was collected by Elaine Hanson, a missionary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America who spent 11 years in Cameroon, and was a member of Femmes pour Christ (Women for Christ).  This particular group used French as their common language, hence the French verse.  Traditionally, it was used as a processional for communion Sunday.
