Medium difficulty
“Prayer And Answer” is a fervent prayer followed by an answer from “Jesus.” It builds with tension and release into an intense, solemn, but joyous climax. Yet it ends tenderly with the statement, “I held you, I hold you, I will hold you in my arms.” This piece is intended for Christmas, but can fit well in many contexts, anytime of the year.

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-
