Stay, My Child, My Body Sharing

Author: Anna Briggs (1947-) Meter: Appears in 1 hymnal Scripture: Matthew 2 Lyrics: 1 Stay, my child, my body sharing. Girlhood's peace from me is torn; well I know a mother's fearing, hope miscarried, joy stillborn. Lullaby, lullaby, God has heard a mother's cry, lullaby. 2 Grow, my child, in body chosen by the God who made the earth; mine the answer, in confusion, young, unready to give birth. Lullaby, lullaby, God awaits a baby's cry, lullaby. 3 Sleep, my child, for love surrounds us; we have not been left alone. Though disgrace and shame may hound us, Joseph stays and shields his own. Lullaby, lullaby, Word of God in baby's cry, lullaby. 4 Wake, my child, the world is crying, calls you, evil's power to cross; opens you to early dying, motherhood's most dreaded loss. Lullaby, lullaby, pain of God in mother's cry, lullaby. 5 Go, my child, grace protect you, shape your living, fill your breath; by its power to resurrect you, break the grip of fear and death. Lullaby, lullaby, hope for all in mother's cry, lullaby. Topics: Christmas; Mary; Christian Year; Epiphany Used With Tune: DANIEL'S

In Bethlem Town

Author: Leland Bryant Ross Appears in 1 hymnal Scripture: Matthew 2:16 First Line: In Bethlem town the Christ was born Lyrics: 1. In Bethlem town the Christ was born. They laid him down that starlit mor-ee-orn Amidst the corn, in swaddling gown Unbleached and worn, with hay his crown. Too-loo-ree-loo, too-loo-ree-lay, Too-loo-ree-loo: 'twas Christmas Day. 2. On hills nearby, poor shepherds graze Their flocks. The sky explodes in prai-ee-aise, With angels' lays to God on high: "Fear not, this day salvation's nigh! Too-loo-ree-loo, too-loo-ree-lirth, Good will to you, and peace on earth!" 3. The shepherds then of one accord To Bethlem ran to greet the Lor-ee-ord. They found him sleeping in a trough, Convolved in cheap, unwhitened cloth. Too-loo-ree-laid, too-loo-ree-lotched, They knelt and prayed as Mary watched. 4. From Persia far, wise Parsees came, Led by his star, to praise his name-ee-ame. They brought presents of gold and myrrh And frankincense--and beaver fur, Too-loo-ree-lurr, too-loo-ree-lee, Then went home sur-reptitiously. 5. King Herod had bequestioned them, With motive bad, about Bethlem-ee-em. The crafty sages Herod left In royal rage, of facts bereft-- Too-loo-ree-lilled, too-loo-ree-lents, So Herod killed the Innocents. 6. God said to Joseph and his wife: To Egypt go, to save your li-ee-ife. Thine ancient namesake as a slave To Egypt came your folk to save. Too-loo-ree-lask, too-loo-ree-lun, A sim'lar task awaits your son. 7. Good people all, consider ye, Whom God hath called to liberty-I-ee-- Consider well the awful cost The Scriptures tell in children lost; Too-loo-ree-low, too-loo-ree-laid, Consider now the ransoms paid. 8. God's peace to you; now merry be, For 'tis all true, of verity-I-ee. The baby born, ye know it well, That holy morn, hath vanquished Hell, Too-loo-ree-loss, too-loo-ree-lee, Upon the cross, and we are free!

Sainte Nuit

Author: A. Bail Meter: Irregular Appears in 1 hymnal Scripture: Matthew 2 First Line: O nuit de paix! Sainte nuit! Lyrics: 1 O nuit de paix! Sainte nuit! Dans le ciel l'astre luit; Dans les champs tout repose en paix. Mais soudain, dans l'air pur et frais, Le brillant choeur des anges Aux bergers apparaît. 2 O nuit de foi! Sainte nuit! Les bergers sont instruits; Confiants dans la voix des cieux, Ils s'en vont adorer leur Dieu; Et Jésus, en échange Leur sourit radieux. 3 O nuit d'amour! Sainte nuit! Dans l'étable, aucun bruit; Sur la paille est couché l'Enfant Que la Vierge endort en chantant: Il repose en ses langes, Son Jésus ravissant. 4 O nuit d'espoir! Sainte nuit! L'espérance a relui: Le Sauveur de la terre est né; C'est à nous que Dieu l'a donné. Célébrons ses louanges: Gloire au Verbe incarné! Topics: Christmas Used With Tune: STILLE NACHT
