If You Could Hie or O Savior, Thou Who Wearest Solo

One of favorite switches to make is trading off the melodies of “If You Could Hie to Kolob” and “O Savior, Thou Who Wearest”. In this version, you have the melody of “If You Could Hie to Kolob”, but both sets of words.

A Capella “O Savior Thou Who Wearest a Crown”


I have always loved “O Savior, Thou Who Wearest a Crown” even before I went on a mission to Germany, where I learned the original German words, which I loved as well. They are very different than the English and the first line is a little gruesome (It translates to “O head full of blood and wounds”).

I made this arrangement for Cantorum, a local chamber choir that does early music, because this is one of the oldest hymn tunes in the Hymnbook.

Enjoy the arrangement:
