Children sing hymn tunes and lyrics around the village along with other songs (including the military-style chants of the SPLA). Here a group gives an impromptu rendering of one short hymn, and snatches of another. The texts were part of the mission hymn book, a repertoire already familiar in the 1950s but published 1963. Below is a paraphrase translation of what is actually sung here.
Hymn 22, ‘Jesus gave her water’
Jesus gave her water,
From Hymn 23, ‘Yesus Kristhos’ (Tune: ‘Come Thou Fount’)
Jesus Christ, only Jesus
Jesus died, but it was his blood
Jesus, Lord, what can I do?
Look after me for ever,
