Presbyterian pastor and hymn writer Carolyn Winfrey Gillette has written this new text in support of Organ and Tissue Donor Sunday (Donor Sabbath), observed on the second Sunday in November. Our Book of Discipline says, "Organ and Tissue Donor Sunday shall be observed annually, preferably on the second Sunday in November since the date is close to Thanksgiving and is viewed as a time to come together around the issues of life and Thanksgiving." Gillette's hymn will help congregations do that.
