Friday Favorites #3

by Jul 12, 2013Musings5 comments

Here’s one of my absolute favorite modern compositions: “Behold the Wounds in Jesus’ Hands” with text by John V. Pearson and Music by David R. Naylor.

This is a go-to standard in my library. The words are touching and sweet, and the music is beautiful. This video uses the BYU Singers’ rendition.

This arrangement is do-able by the smaller choirs typical of local congregations. There is one very high passage toward the end, but the highest notes are optional. This rendition is a bit slower than I usually take it with a smaller choir–hey, this choir has the breath control and the acoustics to do that!


SATB anthem, SATB Hymn, SSA and Solo versions are available, as well as a full orchestration and an organ prelude version. Here are a some places to get it:

The SATB Hymn version appeared in the Ensign magazine, and is downloadable free of charge here: Hymn Version

Other versions are available from:

Jackman Music (Publisher): All versions (except the SSA)

Sheet Music Plus: All versions (except the organ prelude)–and at a discount, which is always good. 🙂

Happy Friday folks!
