Expressive and sensitive arranging results in a poignant piece for any service throughout the year.  The traditional spiritual is enhanced by incorporating nice harmonies, smooth-as-glass vocals and a tasteful flute obbligato.  This carefully crafted gem is worth repeating time and time again.  Stirring!

This traditional spiritual has been set with a beautiful flute (or other C instrument) obbligato that keeps the energy moving forward. A brief a cappella section that is supported by a single flute line right at the end begins a decrescendo winding down to the end. In fact the entire piece begins softly and gradually builds to a forte climax in the middle and returns to decrescendo gradually with less motion to the end.

A nice inclusion in a worship service or as a gem in the midst of a spirituals concert, Give Me Jesus' simple message perfectly touches the singers and audience.
