Give Me Jesus

for mixed choir a cappella

This haunting melody, is one of the most beautiful songs that the slaves composed; bone-weary and sorrow-filled… with their eyes firmly fixed on a Great Deliverer somewhere up in heaven. The itinerant preachers that visited the plantations, selected specific passages from the Bible- guaranteeing them entrance to the Promised Land- if they worked hard for their masters and overseers. Out of those depraved and inhuman conditions, were born these timeless, heartfelt pleas to God, for deliverance.
