I confess that I have always thought that “Jesus, Once of Humble Birth” could use a different tune. In this case, I have paired it with the familiar Easter melody usually associated with “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross”. This setting is an acapella TTBB arrangement, simple, yet reverent. I hope that you enjoy it.
“When I Survey the Wond’rous Cross” is one of my grandmother’s favorite songs. I have always loved it as well and have had a chance to sing the traditional version with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. It seemed to me that there really was only one version that I heard everyone do, and a friend of mine mentioned to me that it might be nice to do a men’s arrangement.
So, friend, here you have it.
