As Sin is Nothing,
Let it Nowhere Be
For SATB Choir (with divisions) and Organ
(2019) 4 minutes
Text by John Donne
Commissioned by Lincoln's Inn for a performance by the Chapel Choir in 2020.
Son of God, hear us, and since Thou
By taking our blood, owest it us again,
Gain to Thyself, or us allow ;
And let not both us and Thyself be slain;
O Lamb of God, which took'st our sin,
Which could not stick to Thee,
O let it not return to us again ;
But patient and physician being free,
As sin is nothing, let it nowhere be.
