Once in Royal David's City

Author: Cecil F. Alexander Hymnal: The Worshiping Church #161 (1990) Meter: 8.7.8.7.7.7 Topics: Biblical Persons Lyrics: 1 Once in royal David's city stood a lowly cattle shed, where a mother laid her baby in a manger for his bed: Mary was that mother mild, Jesus Christ her little child. 2 He came down to earth from heaven who is God and Lord of all, and his shelter was a stable, and his cradle was a stall: with the poor and meek and lowly lived on earth our Savior holy. 3 For he is our childhood's pattern, day by day like us he grew, he was little, weak, and helpless, tears and smiles like us he knew: and he feels for all our sadness, and he shares in all our gladness. 4 And our eyes at last shall see him, through his own redeeming love; for that child, so dear and gentle, is our Lord in heaven above, and he leads his children on to the place where he has gone.

Lo! How a Rose E'er Blooming

Author: Theodore Baker; Harriet Krauth Spaeth Hymnal: The Worshiping Church #163 (1990) Meter: Irregular Topics: Biblical Persons Lyrics: 1 Lo! how a rose e'er blooming from tender stem hath sprung, of Jesse's lineage coming, as saints of old have sung. It came a floweret bright, amid the cold of winter, when half spent was the night. 2 Isaiah 'twas foretold it, the Rose I have in mind; with Mary we behold it, the Virgin Mother kind. To show God's love aright, she bore for us a Savior, when half spent was the night. 3 This Flower, whose fragrance tender with sweetness fills the air, dispels with glorious splendor the darkness everywhere. True man, yet very God, from sin and death he saves us and lightens every load. Scripture: John 1:5 Languages: English Tune Title: ES IST EIN' ROS' ENTSPRUNGEN
