Christ Has My Hart, Ay

  • (Words trad / tune Alan Reid)

    For us that blessed bairn was born
    For us he was baith rent and torn
    For us he was crownit with thorn
    Christ has my hart ay, Christ has my hart ay

    For us he shed his precious blood
    For us was nailet on the rood
    For us in many battle stood
    Christ has my hart ay, Christ has my hart ay

    Next him to love his mother fair
    With steadfast hart for evermair
    She bore the birth, freed us from care
    Christ has my hart ay, Christ has my hart ay

    As sung by The Battlefield Band

 

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1993:] This psalm or carol first appears in the 'Gude and Godlie Ballates' first published in 1667. Alan came across it while reading T. C. Smith's 'A History of the Scottish People'. Its subsequent disappearance from later editions of the 'Ballates' is probably due to its sentiments which would have been undesirable to the Calvinist elements that eventually took control of the reformation of the Church of Scotland. As there was no tune available, Alan made one up. (Notes Battlefield Band, 'Stand Easy' CD)
