I wrote “Jesus of Nazareth Went to Capernaum” for the Mark 1:21-28 text in 2006, which was also the 250th anniversary year of the birth of Mozart. The tune is the familiar theme from “Piano Sonata no. 11 in A major, K 331.” Dr. Arthur Frackenpohl, the late emeritus professor of music at the Crane School of Music, S.U.N.Y. Potsdam, arranged the tune and had it engraved.

You are free to print the hymn for congregational use. It’s been sung in Philadelphia, Houston, Chicago, Northern New York, Washington D.C., and perhaps elsewhere.
