Huron Carol - Traditional, arr. Daley

Arranged: 2006
Sung by: The Oxford Choir
Album: Christmas Choral Highlghts


'Twas in the moon of winter time, when all the birds had fled,
That mighty Gitchi-Manitou sent angel choirs instead;
Before their light the stars grew dim, and wondering hunters heard the hymn:

Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, in excelsis gloria.

Within a lodge of broken bark the tender babe was found,
A ragged robe of rabbit skin enwrapped his beauty round;
But as the hunter braves drew nigh, the angel song rang loud and high:

Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, in excelsis gloria.

O children of the forest free, O sons of Manitou,
The holy child of earth and heaven is born today for you.
Come, kneel before the radiant boy, who brings you beauty, peace and joy:

Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, in excelsis gloria.
