By Request, ‘The People That in Darkness Sat’

Requested by TheWhiteRabbit especially for Advent, coming to us via Isaiah, The People That in Darkness Sat: and this is The Lutheran Warbler, working her way through the Lutheran Hymnal.

‘Come, Thou Precious Ransom, Come’

This is an old German hymn from 1699, sung for us today by the Lutheran Warbler. This is the first time I’ve heard it.

‘Away in a Manger’ (Lutheran Warbler)

By now I think the baby Jesus would have been moved out of the manger, and into a cradle in a rented house, where the Wise Men found him. But the manger is such an enduring symbol of Christmas, and I want to hold on to this Christmas a little longer–because I pray for its spirit to work all year long, every day.

So here is Away in a Manger, sung by the Lutheran Warbler.
