Advent to Candlemas (Vol. 3)

Just as the Angels Said

See him wrapped in swaddling clothes
Just as the angels said;
A stable to receive a king,
A manger for a bed.

See him cry to greet the world
Just as the prophets said;
He and his mother sorrow-bound
For she will see him dead.

See him smile to meet the world
Just as her cousin said;
The rich laid low, the poor raised high
And all the hungry fed.

See him rise to conquer death
Just as the angel said:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
