I learned the following hymn from a Pete Seeger recording. (Pete Seeger pictured at the left.) I've always loved folk music and I found the words of this song somewhat uplifting. I am of Quaker ancestry myself, and a considerable component of the Quaker witness through history has been the commitment to peace and to social justice, the commitment to the gospel ideals of reconciling the world -- in the here and now, not in some far off heaven in the clouds. Pete Seeger is not a Quaker himself, but certainly in some sense is a 'fellow-traveller,' and shares many of the same values of social justice and making the world a better place. The jacket blurb indicated Seeger got the song from his friend Doris Plenn, of Quaker heritage. The song was an old Quaker hymn.
