“Worthy is the Lamb whose death makes me His own! The Lamb is reigning on His throne!” This Hayes arrangement of Gerald Patrick Coleman’s piece is a powerful picture of Jesus as the Lamb of God. The first of the five verses presents the lovely, simple melody sung in unison, and each of the ensuing stanzas builds on it by adding voices in varying settings. The fourth verse is a cappella, providing your choir the opportunity to sing expressively and sensitively about Christ’s sacrificial death. Hayes then modulates up a step and adds a soprano descant for the triumphant fifth stanza that celebrates Christ’s resurrection. Suitable for good youth choirs and any adult choir, this is a moving piece to add to your Easter season repertoire.
