Her Baby, Newly Breathing

Author: Brian Wren Hymnal: Chalice Hymnal #158 (1995) Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Topics: God Known in Jesus Christ Birth; Birth; Jesus Christ: Birth Lyrics: 1 Her baby, newly breathing, with wailing needful cry, by Mary kissed and cradled, is lulled in lullaby. Long months of hope and waiting, the thrill and fear of birth, are crowned with exultation, and God is on the earth. 2 The eyes that gaze at Mary have yet to name or trace the world of shape and color, or recognize a face; yet Holiness Eternal is perfectly expressed in hands that clutch unthinking, and lips that tug the breast. 3 The milk of life is flowing as Mary guides and feeds her wordless Word, embodied in infant joys and needs. Enormous, formless strivings, and yearnings deep and wide, be-cradled in communion, are fed and satisfied. 4 How mother-like the Wisdom that carried and gave birth to all things, seen and unseen, and nurtured infant earth: unstinting, unprotected, prepared for nail and thorn, constricted into maleness, and of a woman born.

Birth of Christ

Hymnal: A Selection of Psalms and Hymns #CCLXXXVI (1790) Topics: Birth of Christ First Line: What good news the angels bring Lyrics: 1 What good news the angels bring What glad tidings of our King CHRIST our LORD is born to-day, CHRIST who takes our sins away. Him, who rules in heav'n and earth, Hath in Bethleh'm his birth: Him shall all the people see, And rejoice eternally. 2 Lift your hearts and voices high, With Hosannas fill the sky; "Glory be to GOD above," GOD is invinite in love: "Peace on earth, good will to men!" Now with us our GOD is seen: Angels join with us in praise! Help to sing redeeming grace. 3 Now the wall is broken down, Now the Gospel is made known; Now the door is open wide, CHRIST for Jew and Gentile dy'd. All who feel the wieght of sin, All who languish to be clean; All who for redemption groan, May be sav'd by faith alone. 4 JESUS is the lovely nane; This the angel doth proclaim; He shall all his people save, They in him remission ahve: When thy see themselves undone, They take refuge in the Son; They shall all be born again, And with him in glory reign. 5 Shout ye nations of the earth, Sing the triumphs of his birth; All the world by him is blest, Sound his praise from East to West: Jews and Gentiles jointly sing, CHRIST our common LORD and King, CHRIST our life, our joy, our song, To eternity prolong!
