I am Naught without my Savior [SATB]

SATB hymn


This is a modal hymn that eloquently teaches the Plan of Salvation. The text by David Macfarlane was written in stages – before, during, and after his missionary service in Argentina. The hymn describes elements of the premortal life, the veil, recognizing the Spirit, and being reconciled with God through Jesus Christ, followed by stirring descriptions of the praise and good works that accompany true conversion.

Nathan Howe set the text to this new melody in late 2005. The music incorporates some traditionally solemn elements of text and music with some more modern harmonies.

This hymn is available in C minor and D minor.  We recommend D minor for more advanced choirs with strong soprano sections.

An arrangement for TTBB men’s voices is also available.

  1. Is there a copy of the sheet music for TTBB. We want to finish our Easter sacrament program with a Quartet of men singing this song.
