Target Age Group: Grades 3-6 (with option of K-2 joining in singing the phrases, “Christ we do all adore Thee, and we do praise Thee forever.”)
Description: Christ We Do All Adore Thee, the a cappella final movement from Theodore DuBois’ The Seven Last Words of Christ, was arranged for our Viva Voce 2011-2012 curriculum for unison (optional two-part) with violin and piano (or harp) accompaniment. This gentle anthem is appropriate and easy to prepare for Lent/Holy Week or for a Communion service. If sung in parts, opportunities for tuning thirds and sixths abound.
Christ, we do all adore thee,
And we do praise thee for ever,
Who on the cruel cross
Hast thou the world from sin redeemed.
