Two-part children's choir (SA) with piano. Text by Christina Rossetti. Tender and sweet, like a lullaby.
Lo! newborn Jesus soft and weak and small,
Wrapped in baby’s bands by his mother’s hands,
Lord God of all.
Lord God of Mary, whom his lips caress.
While He rocks to rest on her milky breast
Lord God of shepherds flocking through the cold.
Flocking through the dark to the only Ark,
The only Fold.
Lord God of all things be they near or far,
Be they high or be they low, Lord of storm and snow,
Angel and star.
Lo! newborn Jesus soft and weak and small.
Lo! newborn Jesus, Lord God of all men.
My Lord and my God!
Thou who lovest me, keep me close to thee
By staff and rod.
Lo! newborn Jesus loving great and small,
Love’s free Sacrifice, opening Arms and Eyes
to one and all.
