Christmas carol lyrics from the Bible and an old-fashioned carol-like tune combine in this free Christmas song for SATB choir or a solo vocalist with guitar.
These lyrics come straight from scripture, and I have to say even years after writing this song, I am still moved at the beauty of the words. They are mostly chosen from the King James version of the Bible, and tell the story of Mary being filled with wonder at the Christ Child to whom she has given birth.
