Lullaby of Love - A Christmas Song

For unison choir with optional second part (SA)
Words: William Hastings
Music: David Catherwood
Level: Early Intermediate
Sheet Music Plus/Opus 3 Music

A gentle Christmas lullaby composed by David Catherwood with new words by William Hastings. This version may be sung in unison and has an optional second part. The song is also available from Sheet Music Plus in an SATB version. The gently flowing melodic line will be easily learned by children or adults and the simple, yet effective accompaniment provides interest and color with a few delicate references to other “manger” carols. The words of the first verse are below:

The eastern star shone through Bethlehem’s night
Guiding the wise men with heavenly light
The angels in chorus sang a new song
The light of the world has been born
The hope of the world has come
To show us a world of love
His beauty adorned in his mother’s embrace
A miracle of His grace
