The Christ-Child Lay In Mary's Lap

SSA Chorus

4:30

 

Text:

The Christ-child lay in Mary's lap, His hair was like a light.

(O weary, weary were the world, But here is all aright.)

The Christ-child lay on Mary's breast, His hair was like a star.

(O stern and cunning are the kings, But here the true hearts are.)

The Christ-child lay on Mary's heart, His hair was like a fire.

(O weary, weary is the world, But here the world's desire,)

The Christ-child stood on Mary's knee, His hair was like a crown

And all the flowers looked up at Him, And all the stars looked down.

G. K. Chesterton
