A luscious piano accompaniment and a melody that masterfully paints William Mason's text make this piece by David Rasbach a wonderful addition to the CG catalog. The text and music explore the various ways in which we experience God (sight, sound, speech). Lord, I Was Blind is suitable for advanced youth choirs and most adult choirs. The optional cello part offers the opportunity to feature a gifted player.
