Gentle Jesus
Jesus, Jesus, Rest Your Head


This traditional American folk melody has been set and to two sets of lyrics; one set with a Christmas message (Jesus, Jesus, Rest Your Head) and the other a less well-known general text (Gentle Jesus).  The piece has been conceived in a homophonic style to be sung acappella (a rehearsal only reduction is present).
