Know Him

Christmas MusicI first heard Mark Sirett’s setting of “Thou Shalt Know Him” more than ten years ago and it’s a piece that both blew me away and gave me goosebumps. It is sung beautifully here by the Spiritus Chamber Choir in Calgary under the direction of Tim Shantz.

Thou Shalt Know Him (anonymous)
Thou shalt know him when he comes,

Not by any din of drums,
Nor his manners, nor his airs,
Nor by any thing he wears.

Thou shalt know him when he comes,
Not by a crown nor by a gown,
But his coming known shall be,
By the holy harmony
Which his coming makes in thee.
Thou shalt know him when he comes.
