Ready My Heart
Music and Lyric by Lois Shuford
Ready my heart for the birth of Immanuel
Ready my soul for the Prince of Peace
Heap the straw of my life
For His body to lie on
Light the candle of hope
Let the child come in
Alleluia, Christ the Saviour is born
Mine is the home that is poor and is barren
Mine is the stable of cold and stone
Break the light to each corner
Of doubt and of darkness
Now the Word is made flesh
For the birth of me
Hi! I really love this song and would love the music for it… any way to get it?
You’ve hit the ball out the park! Incridbele!
I’d love to listen to a preview of this song prior to purchasing. Is there any way to do that?
My church sings this song during Advent each year and I’ve played the music for it. Would you like it?
I understand there is no sheet music for Ready My Heart, but is there a music only cd to sing to in church? I would so love to share this plus other songs of yours with my church family. I have some of your CDs, but do I need your permission to use them in church?
I do the candle lighting advent with this song at my church! It was great and People said its look so lovely
I’ve posted a leadsheet and piano accompaniment of “Ready My Heart” at my blog: http://musicblog.gregscheer.com/2015/11/04/ready-my-heart/. I hope this helps!
Hi Steve, correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe “Ready My Heart” is available as printed piano music (with vocal line and guitar chords) in your book “The Music of Steve Bell: A Songbook”, such as found here: https://www.amazon.com/Songbook-1989-1995-Arrangements-Intercessions-Benedictus/dp/B002T0XER0.
