My Child I Love You (SATB with optional Piano accomp.)

This original piece is a classic example of David Hepburn's choral style, and a classic example of the very real love of God that David has always felt so strongly and written and spoken so movingly about.

The lyric is self-explanatory:

God made the mountains rise, placed ev'ry tree.
He fixed each star in the sky and filled the sea.
He guides the universe, the rain and the wind.
He is the Alpha, Omega, the Beginning and the End.

Yet the Lord is my Shepherd, and He cares for me,
Like a father with his child He knows my ev'ry need.
And because He knows I'm weak, and because He loves me so,
He extends His grace and pardon and says, "Child, I love you so."

"I love you more than the mountains or the birds of the air,
More than the lilies of the fields in all their beauty."
"More than the flowers that bloom and are here for but a day,
I love you as My precious child, I love you as My precious child,
I love you as My precious child,
My child, I love you."

This piece can be performed by choirs of all sizes (be forewarned, however, that all four parts do split at times) with or without piano accompaniment. The basses need a low F and the sopranos need a high A. On the whole, a very effective and singable piece.

MP3 sound sample: Entire piece (synthesizer/midi).

MY CHILD I LOVE YOU, an original choral anthem by David Hepburn, comes in a pdf file of 644K, with a seven-page score and a license page, eight pages in all. Performance time should be approximately 3:15.

The majority of our sheet music pieces use electronically-produced demos on the item pages. We would much prefer to use actual recordings, so if you email us a digital recording or link to an online video and we end up using it as a demo on our site (fully credited), we will send you a coupon code good for US$25 toward your next purchase from our site.

Many of our sheet music licenses state that the purchaser does not have the right to record the work. We have modified our policy on this, and unless the license page states that you must obtain permission from a party other than to record the work, we will allow a small number (less than 50) of copies of an audio or video recording of a live performance to be made and distributed and/or posted to a free web site for viewing/listening, so long as, the composer, arranger, and lyricist are credited.

A customer commented: "Today I made my first purchase from Tributek. Every aspect of the transaction exceeded my expectations. The description of the product included a Quicktime demo in addition to a clear, interesting, well-written description of the product. The price of the product was a bargain. The ordering process could not have been easier or faster. I will definitely shop with Tributek again!"

Another customer commented: "I would like to compliment you on the ease of purchasing music on-line. I require the music for a wedding in a couple of weeks, and didn't want to wait for music to be sent in the mail. It was great to be able to hear the music and to know the length of the PDF file and performance time."

Another customer writes: "I bought some choral music off your site. It's great. I hope we can do all of it in our church. I don't know how you can sell it so cheap. It's a great service you offer."
