For the Christmas season, Mrs. Eddy’s poem set to two familiar carols, In the Bleak Midwinter (“Cranham” by Gustav Holst) and O Little Town of Bethlehem (“St. Louis” by Lewis H. Redner). Easy to sing and play, a quiet, gentle solo sure to please the congregation.
Words: Mary Baker Eddy from Poems, p. 29
Music: “Cranham” by Gustav Holst and “St. Louis” by Lewis H. Redner,
arr. by Susan I. Lindquist
Blest Christmas morn, though
Pursue thy way,
Thy light was born where storm
Nor dawn nor day!
Dear Christ, forever here and near,
No cradle song,
No natal hour and mother’s tear,
To thee belong.
Thou God-idea, Life-encrowned,
The Bethlehem babe —
Beloved, replete, by flesh embound —
Was but thy shade!
Thou gentle beam of living Love,
And deathless Life!
Truth infinite, — so far above
All mortal strife,
Or cruel creed, or earth-born taint:
Fill us today
With all thou art — be thou our saint,
Our stay, alway.
