A Poor Brother's Hymnal

  Unto Us a Boy Is Born
Unto us a Boy is born! The King of all creation,
Came He to a world forlon, the Lord of every nation.

Cradled in a stall was he with sleepy coys and asses;
But the very beasts could see that He all men surpasses.

Herod then with fear was filled; "A prince," he said, "in Jewry!"
All the little boys he killed at Bethlehem in his fury.

Now may Mary's son, who came, so long ago to love us,
Lead us all with hearts a flame unto the joys above us.

Unto us a boy is born! The King of all creations,
Came He to a world forlorn, the Lord of every nation.

All my favorite hymns. Most of them are from before the Reformation.
