Description:

This Shirley Erena Murray text explores the meaning of Christ’s birth among the poor and how we must treat that reality today.
Haas treats the text with a gentle, lyrical melody—unison for two stanzas, and then a 2-part harmony on the final stanzas that functions somewhat independent of the melody. For the assembly it’s a simply 4-stanza hymn.

Assembly part is optional.
