This trilingual arrangement was envisioned for use during the Preparation of the Gifts at the Evening Mass of Holy Thursday. It would also be useful throughout the liturgical year whenever themes of love, charity, and service feature prominently in the Lectionary, as well as at wedding and anniversary liturgies.The choral parts underneath the verse and the optional parts for C instrument and cello help add color and variety. However, the hymn could be led by cantor and piano alone. When used during the Preparation of the Gifts, the optional coda allows flexibility to tailor the music to the length of the rite.
