Infant Holy, Infant Lowly

This is a beautiful, quiet carol with sweeping, lyrical lines in both the melody and the harmony. This one make take a little more effort to learn than some of the other carols and it's well worth it.

lyrics

Infant holy, infant lowly, for His bed a cattle stall
Oxen lowing, little knowing Christ the babe is Lord of all.
Swift are winging, angels singing, noels ringing, tidings bringing
Christ the babe is Lord of all
Christ the babe is Lord of all

Flocks were sleeping, shepherds keeping vigil till the morning new
Saw the glory, heard the story, tidings of a gospel true
Thus rejoicing, free from sorrow, praises voicing, greet the morrow
Christ the babe was born for you
Christ the child was born for you

I want to sing like the bird sings, not worrying who listens or what they think. - Jelaludding Rumi
