A short exhange between StF+ users raised a couple of questions about the last two lines of the first verse:

"all beware
as if you were not there."

Is the word "beware" a misprint, asks Derek Long. Would it help if there was a comma following that word, suggests Ian Howarth.

Graham Maule, the hymn's co-author, confirms that the words "all beware", rather than being a command, are descriptive (all are wary), and that the comma is optional. "As if you were not there" is published in Love From Below with a comma after "all beware" but in When Grief is Raw (also a Wild Goose publication) without.
