Whatsoever You Do (Jabusch)

"Whatsoever You Do" was sung at 10:00 Mass at the Church of St. Matthew in St. Paul, MN on 11/19/2017. I really like this song. My steel string acoustic guitar was a bit out of tune. Jill at piano. Backed up by Chris on guitar and the vocals of Charlie, Andy and "the other Richard."

Refrain: Whatsoever you do to the least of my people that you do unto me.

When I was hungry, you gave me to eat; 
When I was thirsty you gave me to drink. 
Now enter into the home of my Father.

When I was homeless, you opened your door; 
When I was naked, you gave me your coat. 
Now enter into the home of my Father.

When I was weary, you helped me find rest; 
When I was anxious, you calmed all my fears. 
Now enter into the home of my Father.

When I was little, you taught me to read;
When I was lonely, you gave me your love.
Now enter into the home of my Father.

When in a prison, you came to my cell; 
When on a sickbed, you cared for my needs. 
Now enter into the home of my Father.

In a strange country, you made me at home;
Seeking employment, you found me a job.
Now enter into the home of my Father.

Hurt in a battle, you bound up my wounds;
Searching for kindness, you held out your hand.
Now enter into the home of my Father.

...

When I was laughed at, you stood by my side; 
When I was happy, you shared in my joy. 
Now enter into the home of my Father.
