Born to Wear a Crown

 
Lyrics & Information
LyricsAbout the song…
Lo, a Child, born to low estate,
Lies where ox and lamb are fed
Nor was found a place more worthy,
For this Child no softer bed

Born to wear a crown of glory,
Brighter far than earth affords
For this Child laid in a manger
Is King of kings and Lord of lords

Lo his palace is a stable,
And his robes are swaddling bands
Starlight the gem upon his brow,
Love the scepter in his hand

Born to wear a crown of glory,
Brighter far than earth affords
For this Child laid in a manger
Is King of kings and Lord of lords

Holy infant, Son of Mary,
Born in Bethlehem this night
He shall be enthroned in heaven,
Robed in honor, robed in light

Born to wear a crown of glory,
Brighter far than earth affords
For this Child laid in a manger
Is King of kings and Lord of lords

The accompaniment for the duet version of this song is quite different from the SATB or SSA. I didn’t do a new choral or women’s arrangement using the duet accompaniment simply because I like the original better for a choral setting. To hear the SATB, click the “CDs and Other Good Stuff” tab and play the video… just lovely!
