From the team of John Parker and Mark Hayes, this gentle, but haunting lullaby is well-suited for Maundy Thursday or Good Friday services. The metaphor of Christ, the Good Shepherd, reversing roles and becoming the sacrificial lamb is powerful and speaks to His perfect love for us. Musically, Hayes moves between G minor and G major in a flowing 3/4 meter. The partwriting is well-crafted and accessible. The piano accompaniment supports the chorals well.
