Thou Art the Christ, O Lord

Item Number: 00-36830
Format: Choral Octavo
Voicing: SATB

By William Walsham How (1823-1897) with additional text by Sheldon Curry, music by Sheldon Curry

In his confession, Peter acknowledges that Jesus is, in fact, the Messiah, descended from the living God; here is the one Christian confession in the New Testament. In an original setting of How's text, the music mirrors the stark significance of Peter's recognition and his willingness to declare his faith, no matter the cost. Christ is the Rock on which our salvation rests; Peter's testimony of faith in Christ was the doctrinal foundation on which Christ's community would be built.
