SATB Choir & Piano
words and Music by Joannie Ing
An original work that tells Christmas story, scored for SATB and piano (with optional violin). The lyrical inspiration comes from Luke 2:11 in the Bible: “Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” Winner of the Amadeus Choir’s 2015 Christmas Songwriting Competition.
There were no rooms in the inn that day
Jesus Christ child was born
Instead, in manger bed He lay
That blessed Christmas morn, oh that blessed Christmas morn!
Wise men travelled from afar
With frankincense, myrrh and gold
“We’ve come to worship, we followed the star
As prophet Isaiah foretold.”
A Saviour is born! Come and rejoice!
A Saviour is born! Proclaim in one voice
We sing Alleluia to the King of Kings!
Angels of the Lord appeared
As shepherds watched flocks by night
The Christ child is born, so have no fear!
He’s God’s eternal light!
The story of Christmas, of Virgin birth
A wonder from God above
Good will to men and peace on earth
A message of hope and love
