The Sacrifice

I wrote this song after being inspired by George Herbert‘s poetry.  Specifically, his poem, the Sacrifice deeply inspired me.  I read it for several years leading up to Holy Week.

This verse, in particular, jumped right off the page and into my spirit.

O all ye who passe by, behold and see;
Man stole the fruit, but I must climbe the tree;
The tree of life to all, but onely me:
Was ever grief like mine?

You can find the chord chart and string quartet arrangement here.
