This modern Christmas carol combines both the everydayness and the extraordinary circumstances of Jesus' birth. It comes from early chapters of Matthew and Luke.
He arrives as a baby, with a breath and cry.
He's arrived in a stable; nowhere else to stay.
They arrive—sev'ral shepherds, on a search, enthused.
Praising God that they've seen it, shepherds all depart.
This is mainly a solo for treble voice, although some extra voices could be added. The accompaniment is written for guitar and optional piano.
