Truly Yahweh

Chorus:  Truly Yahweh was in this place And I never knew, Truly Yahweh was in this place And I never knew. 1 Be sure that I am with you, There wherever you go! And I will bring you back to your own land, As I have promised you.  2  For I shall be your Father You shall be truly mine. And deep within your heart my home shall be, For I have chosen you.
This hymn about God's presence in the world is based on Genesis 28:15-17.   It was written by Australian Roman Catholic priest, liturgist and folk-musician Fr Frank Andersen.

It was originally published in the "Everything I Possess" collection, which was renamed Galilee Song.   It is therefore included in the Scripture in Song - The Music of Frank Andersen MSC collection, which is still available.   Both of there include lead-sheet style sheet music.

The tune was written by Fr Andersen:  it has a 4/4 time signature, and in teh key of C the first few notes are CD E CC F ED.

Chorus:
Truly Yahweh was in this place
And I never knew,
Truly Yahweh was in this place
And I never knew.

Be sure that I am with you,
There wherever you go!
And I will bring you back to your own land,
As I have promised you.

For I shall be your Father
You shall be truly mine.
And deep within your heart my home shall be,
For I have chosen you.
