Description

Notes: A simple yet haunting song, suitable for communion in Lent. It can be performed in a number of ways:
1) Unison voices - Singing the soprano line and then the tenor line between bars 19-22
2) 2 part - with the lower part reading the alto line and singing the tenor line between bars 19-22
3) SATB
The melody should not be too fast and should always be sustained. The verses could be sung by a solo singer to provide contrast.

The text is adapted from St. Matthew and Psalm 51, and is not the Charles Everest hymn text.

Take up your cross, the Saviour said, if you want to follow me.
I acknowledge my faults, and my sin is ever before me.
Hide your face from my sins, and blot out my wicked transgressions.
