A Child is Born in Bethlehem
Christmas anthem for SATB choir (accompaniment optional). Text from a 14th century Benedictine processional; musical setting J. Bruce Ashton.
A Child is born in Bethlehem
Therefore rejoice Jerusalem
Within a manger He doth lie,
Whose throne is set above the sky
Stillness was all the manger round,
The creature its Creator found.
The wise men came led by the star
Gold, myrrh, and incense brought from afar.
His mother is the virgin mild,
And He the Father’s only Child.
Our human flesh He enters in,
But bears no single taint of sin.
To fallen man Himself He bowed,
That He might lift us up to God.
On this most blessed Jubilee,
All glory be , O God to Thee,
A Child is Born in Bethlehem (midi)
