He Is Born The Divine Christ Child was playing as occasional music before worship at MGPC this morning.
It is an old favourite with my daughter and I always wondering what the merry playing of a bagpipe and oboe would really sound like.
Nothing says ‘Party’ like some oboe and bagpipe apparently.

Children’s voices carry the lightness and joy of the lyrics.

The lyrics:
Refrain
He is born, the divine Christ Child;
play the oboe and bagpipes merrily!
He is born, the divine Christ Child;
sing we all of the Savior mild.
1
Through long ages of the past,
prophets have foretold His coming;
through long ages of the past,
now the time has come at last!
Refrain
2
O how lovely, O how pure
is this perfect Child of heaven;
O how lovely, O how pure,
gracious gift to humankind!
Refrain
3
Jesus, Lord of all the world,
coming as a Child among us;
Jesus, Lord of all the world,
grant to us Thy heavenly peace.
Refrain
