Voicing: SATB (divisi)
Categories: [Christmas] [Prayer]
A cappella
Medium difficulty
A fervent prayer followed by an answer from “Jesus” sharing how He came for you. It triumphs with sweet tension and release building into a intense, solemn, but joyous climax. It ends tenderly with the statement, “I held you, I hold you, I will hold you in my arms.” This piece was originally intended for Christmas, and fits well in that context, but the text is pertinent and applicable anytime of the year making this piece possible in any program.

Text (by Michael Sandvik)

Jesus, Jesus, be thou my Savior today,
lest I should perish in my sins.

I came two thousand years ago
with you upon my mind,
from manger to a cross of shame,
I held you in my heart.

Believe in me, look unto me.

Cast away your chains.
Take up your cross and follow me,
and live forever free.

Believe in me, look unto me.

I came two thousand years ago
with you upon my mind,
from manger to a cross of shame,
I held you in my heart.

I held you,
I hold you,
I will hold you in my heart.

-to God alone all glory is given-
