Here is a versatile and useful piece for many occasions. The refrain should be repeated a few times at the beginning until it becomes almost mantra-like for the assembly. After gaining confidence, the refrain may be sung in canon. Depending on which verses are used (Gathering, Distribution of Ashes, or Communion), a soloist or SATB voices can be used.

For cantor or soloist.
