Spiritual songs > Hymns to the Mother of God

Christians, join in our procession

Current version

Here is the version in the Marian Hymnal (1984):

Boh predvicnyj

And here is the Slavonic.

Discussion

This is another hymn of somewhat uncertain origin - but it works well as a pilgrimage processional, and the fit of the English accents to music is not bad.

I am not convinced that it is really in 4/4 time throughout - 2/2 might be better. Also, do you think we should include time signatures in regularly metered hymns like this one?

Thoughts or suggestions?
