Can I Hold Baby Jesus? by Ruth Elaine Schram. Choir Sacred. SATB choir. Choral (Sacred); Choral Octavo; Worship Resources. Christmas; Epiphany; Sacred; Winter. Grade 3. Choral Octavo. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.21577).
"Can I hold Baby Jesus every moment that I live?" This tender Christmas lullaby is also an affirmation of faith. Ruthie Schram's rapturous melody captures every nuance of John Parker's inspired text. Hints of Away in a Manger recall the scene at the manger, and a soaring flute obbligato (part included) adds a sweet touch. In two voicings for singers of all ages.
