He is the balm for every wound; For every sorrow great or small; He is my strength, He is my song, He is my all.
Guard him, Joseph, as He slumbers; There behind the stable doors.
What shall I set upon the altar? I who must come with empty hands? With only my broken heart to offer, God will provide a Lamb.
Traditional carol, arranged for vocal solo.
With his blood so freely spent, He bought my soul; He paid my debt.
Music by Pietro Yon; Text by Frederick H. Martens; Arranged by Sally DeFord. For Solo, SATB or SSA, with optional flutes.
Music by Conrad Kocher, Lyrics by Folliott S. Pierpoint, Arranged by Sally DeFord; for SAB or SSA, both with optional flute.
If I alone bore guilt for which my all could never atone, He would have come for me–for me alone.
I cannot give with empty hands, nor love with barren heart.
Then come what may, I’ll live with courage in my heart because I know He is with me everywhere I go.
Created in His image, His light will be my guide; A heavenly inheritance because I am His child.
Text by Robert Robinson; Melody from John Wyeth’s “Repository of Sacred Music,” Part Second; Arranged by Sally DeFord.
Seek this Jesus whose mercies never cease; Come unto Christ, and find in him eternal peace.
Words by Penelope Moody Allen; Music by Michael F. Moody; Arranged by Sally DeFord
Cast your burden on the Lord, and He will make it light; Come unto Him, ye heavy laden; find your rest in Christ.
