I'm trying to identify the origins of a tune that appears in the 1954 Japanese Protestant hymnal "Sanbika". It is called "KAMI NO HITO" [ ≈ MAN OF GOD], and is #213 in the hymnal. It is described as anonymous. I've put a simple MIDI of the melody line here in hopes that someone can shed some light on its provenance or authorship. Parts of it sound very familiar, but I don't think the entirety does. Does it have secular lyrics (in any language) or sacred lyrics in any other language? (The Japanese text in the hymnal is original in Japanese, by Denkichi Fujimoto, and dated 1903.)
