Come, Bring Your Burdens to God (Woza nomthwalo wakho)

This South African traditional song from the singing of the Mooiplaas congregation comes from from the Iona Community publication We Walk His Way. A great strength of music from southeastern Africa is that it usually emerges from communal life, and in singing such songs we unite our sung prayers with those of the people who created them. 

To lead it, sing through it once or twice. It's easy enough that folks will start singing with you quickly. Encourage harmony and add leader part once the song is set.
