Jesus Walked This Lonesome Valley

Scott Soper

This short but effective arrangement of the well-known spiritual is scored for unaccompanied SAB chorus. Verse one is for solo voice or unison choir, adding all voices for verse 2. The third verse is a wordless canon on the tune for two-part equal or mixed voices. And verse 4 modulates up a third but returns to the SAB texture, now with an additional solo voice for musical punctuation.

Lyrics

1.

Jesus walked this lonesome valley;

He had to walk it by himself.

Oh, nobody else could walk it for him;

He had to walk it by himself.

2.

We must walk this lonesome valley;

We have to walk it by ourselves.

Oh, nobody else can walk it for us;

We have to walk it by ourselves.

3.

You must go and stand your trial;

You have to stand it by yourself.

Oh, nobody else can stand it for you;

You have to stand it by yourself.
