Arlen Clarke Christmas Hath a Darkness

Keyboard [organ/piano]
Moderately Easy
Suggested Uses(s)

SATB Choir and Organ. Optional solo and descant. Okay, this is gorgeous and EASY. And Christina Rosetti knew how to write a poem. Yes, it mentions Christmas, but never fear! It's actually MORE suitable for Advent. (Hint: Heaven hath answering music for all Angels SOON to sing.) If you don't have a descant voice available, try it with an instrument.

Christmas hath a darkness
Brighter than the blazing noon,
Christmas hath a chillness
Warmer than the heat of June.

Christmas hath a beauty
Lovelier than the world can show:
For Christmas bringeth Jesus,
Brought for us so low.

Earth, strike up your music,
Birds that sing and bells that ring;
Heaven hath answering music
For all Angels soon to sing:

Earth, put on your whitest
Bridal robe of spotless snow:
For Christmas bringeth Jesus,
Brought for us so low.
