Oh Stranger, Oh Neighbor

Congregant Debbie Holloway introduced this song. It began as a traditional Shaker song called “O Brethren, Will You Receive,” was later adapted by Harold Aks, and finally underwent some further lyrical massage on the St Lydia’s congregant page.

Enjoy this beautiful new prayer song option. A recording by Debbie is right here.

Oh stranger, will you receive my love?
Oh neighbor, will you receive my love?
Place it in a cup, and you may drink it up.
Oh this is Mother’s love
