The divine moment of God's redemptive power is conveyed in emotional poetry and passionate music. With a heavy heart the anthem moves forward, reminding the listener of the pain of crucifixion and the beauty of unconditional love. Unison singing in the verse offers clarity to the text, while the chorus opens to richer sonorities for the words, “Jesus walked the path of tears, a silent wounded Lamb.” A poignant optional violin obbligato completes this portrait of the cross.
