Special Request, ‘Once in Royal David’s City’

We announced a Christmas Carol Contest yesterday, to begin the day after Thanksgiving; but Marge was quick off the mark with a request for this, Once in Royal David’s City. And there’s no such thing as a bad time for a Christmas hymn!

This rendition by the choir and congregation at King’s College Chapel, Cambridge, moves me close to tears. Nothing can be that beautiful, and not be true. And the most beautiful truth of all is Jesus Christ, Our Lord.

  1. Thank you so much, Lee. And I’m sorry to have jumped the gun there. It’s just that ever since our visit to Israel with a stop in Bethlehem included, this carol has become more personalized to me.
