#OnlineCarols14 9: Unto us is born a son — Lucy Kennedy

Unto us is born a son,
King of choirs supernal:
See on earth his life begun,
Of lords the Lord eternal
Of lords the Lord eternal.

Christ, from heav’n descending low,
Comes on earth a stranger;
Ox and ass their Owner know
Becradled in a manger
Becradled in a manger.

This did Herod sore affray,
And grievously bewilder,
So he gave the word to slay,
And slew the little childer
And slew the little childer.

Of his love and mercy mild
Hear the Christmas story:
O that Mary’s gentle Child
Might lead us up to glory
Might lead us up to glory!

O and A and A and O,
Cantemus in choro,
Voice and organ, sing we so,
Benedicamus Domino
Benedicamus Domino.
