Let Me Love You, O Christ
SATB a cappella with optional accompaniment. A delicious setting of this beautiful prayer by Eric Milner White. Easy and effective, this piece can be done at the beginning of a Lessons and Carols service or as an introit or short anthem anytime during Advent. This has been in our catalog for a number of years, but here it is in a new edition. If you haven't looked at it yet, now may be the time. Just wonderful.
Let me love you, O Christ, in your first coming,
when you were made man for love of humanity,
and for love of me.
Let me love you, O Christ, in your second coming,
when with an inconceivable love,
you stand and knock at the door,
and would enter into the souls of humanity,
and into mine.
Plant in my soul, O Christ, your likeness of love;
that when by death you call, it may be ready
and burning to come unto you.
