Jesus Calls Us Here (Gather Australia 529)

This is another gathering song involving John Bell. GA lists him as author of the text and tune. Wild Goose confirms that the tune is a tradition tune from the island of Lewis and Bell adapted it and also that the text also involves his frequent collaborator Graham Maule.

The range is a bit much for groaners like me but the text is exemplary. You can find that text here. Hymnary has details on the tune.

My backing is a slowish C&W version for some reason.
