Musical offering for the fifth day of Christmas

December 29, 2019

He is born, the divine Christ child,
Play the musette and the bagpipe merrily;
He is born, the divine Christ child,

Sing we all of the Savior mild.

Through long ages of the past
Prophets long have foretold His coming,
Through long ages of the past,

Now the time has come at last.

He is born, the divine Christ child,
Play the musette and the bagpipe merrily;
He is born, the divine Christ child,

Sing we all of the Savior mild.

O how lovely, O how pure
Is this perfect child of heaven;
O how lovely, O how pure
Gracious gift to humankind.

He is born, the divine Christ child,
Play the musette and the bagpipe merrily;
He is born, the divine Christ child,

Sing we all of the Savior mild.

Jesus, Lord of all the world,
Coming as a child among us;
Jesus, Lord of all the world,
Grant to us Thy heavenly peace.

He is born, the divine Christ child,
Play the musette and the bagpipe merrily;
He is born, the divine Christ child,

Sing we all of the Savior mild,
Sing we now the divine Christ child!

Musical offering for the third day of Christmas

December 27, 2019

It’s the birthday of Sir John Goss (1800-1880), who composed the music to “See Amid the Winter’s Snow” in 1871. It’s performed here by the Portland Choir and Orchestra in an arrangement by Dan Forrest.

See amid the winter’s snow,
Born for us on earth below,
See the tender Lamb appears,
Promised from eternal years.
Hail, thou ever-blessed morn!
Hail, redemption’s happy dawn!
Sing through all Jerusalem,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

Lo, within a manger lies
He who built the lofty skies;
He, who throned in height sublime
Sits amid the cherubim.
Hail, thou ever-blessed morn!
Hail, redemption’s happy dawn!
Sing through all Jerusalem,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

Sacred infant, all divine,
What a tender love was Thine,
Thus to come from highest bliss
Down to such a world as this.
Hail, thou ever-blessed morn!
Hail, redemption’s happy dawn!
Sing through all Jerusalem,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.
