Anthem text
See, amid the winter’s snow,
born for us on earth below,
see, the Lamb of God appears,
promised from eternal years!

Lo, within a manger lies
he who built the starry skies,
he who, throned in height sublime,
sits amid the cherubim!

Say, ye holy shepherds, say,
what your joyful news today?
Wherefore have ye left your sheep
on the lonely mountain steep?

“As we watched at dead of night,
lo, we saw a wondrous light;
angels, singing ‘Peace on earth,’
told us of a Saviour’s birth.”

Sacred Infant, all divine,
what a tender love was thine,
thus to come from highest bliss
down to such a world as this!

--Edward Caswell, 1858

review copy

Commissioned for the 106th Annual Christmas Carol Services at Harvard University’s Memorial Church, David White’s carol-like setting of Edward Caswall’s familiar text is warm and lyrical. The treatment, in the manner of a hymn anthem, is not difficult and sings naturally.
