Christmas Carol Lyrics
from the Bible
Lo, I Bring You Tidings
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.

Lo, I bring you tidings, hear God's tender mercies out-poured:
He has sent a saviour which is Christ the Lord.
Down the Dayspring comes to men, made a child of earth,
Sing, Creation, for His birth! Alleluia.
Can this be Messiah, David's son, as prophets did tell?
Shall a tiny Babe be our Emmanuel?
Let us go to Bethlehem, We will see this thing.
Haste, that we may greet our King, Alleluia.
Mary pondered greatly all the words the shepherds had said,
Watching close her baby, in his manger bed.
"Here asleep the Son of God, and the Son of man,
Heav'n and earth within Him stand. Alleluia!"
