The inspiring poem by Sidney Lanier titled “Into the Woods My Master Went” has been set to a variety of tunes. This arrangement uses the hymn tune by Peter C. Lutkin. Set in a minor key, the quiet, reflective melody matches the deeply thought-provoking lyrics (see below). Though the lyrics may seem archaic at first, by reading through the words and meditating on the meaning, the beauty of the message becomes clear. This song is especially suited for prelude or offertory during the season of Lent and Easter.

Verse 1
Into the woods my Master went,
Clean forspent, forspent,
Into the woods my Master came,
Forspent with love and shame.
But the olives they were not blind to Him.
The little grey leaves were kind to Him,
The thorn tree had a mind to Him,
When into the woods He came.

Verse 2
Out of the woods my Master came
And he was well content;
Out of the woods my Master came,
Content with death and shame.
When death and shame would woo Him last,
From under the trees they drew Him last,

’Twas on a tree they slew Him last
When out of the woods He came.

This arrangement is one of the 16 piano solos in the collection "Hymn Favorites, Book 3."
