Can I Hold Baby Jesus?
Words by John Parker III, music by Ruth Elaine Schram
"Can I hold Baby Jesus every moment that I live?" This tender Christmas lullaby is also an affirmation of faith. Ruthie Schram's rapturous melody captures every nuance of John Parker's inspired text. Hints of Away in a Manger recall the scene at the manger, and a soaring flute obbligato (part included) adds a sweet touch. In two voicings for singers of all ages.
