Description

SATB Choir, Soprano solo and Organ. Beautiful melodic and harmonic writing compliment Christina Rossetti's poem. Perfect for when John 21:14-17 is offered. "Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?" "Yes, Lord," he said, "you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Feed my lambs."

Love is the key of life and death,
Of hidden, heavenly mystery;
Of all Christ is, of all he saith,
Love is the key. 

As three times to his saint he saith, 
He saith to me, he saith to thee, 
Breathing his grace-conferring breath: 
"Lov'st thou me?" 

Ah, Lord, I have such feeble faith, 
Such feeble hope to comfort me; 
But love it is strong as death, 
And I love thee.
