V-009 Carol of the Shepherd Child

This simple Carol has these lyrics:

With a lamb I’ll wander forward in the light

of the star that’s guiding our way tonight,

find the child of whom the angels said:

“come to us upon this wordly earth

on this day and in a manger laid”.

You, my lamb so lowly on this Christmas day,

be my Saviour from all evil way.

Shine your hope upon my life on earth,

be my shepherd then,

my light in darker days,

take my heart and mold it in your ways.

It is presented in several settings:

Voice and keyboard or harp

Voice and quartet or trio

Voice and quintet or quartet

Voices and 2 instruments
