This is one of several songs written in two parts, for singing at the start and finish of the performance. The midi file includes both parts -the second part (reprise) follows on from Part 1 after a short gap. The music was originally produced using a Yamaha keyboard, and has been re-configured to give similar sound textures using a Soundblaster AWE 64 sound card. Actual results will depend on the sound card used.

Part One (at the start of the performance)

Time moves on, goes so fast;
Another year will soon be past.
Christmas time comes, and so
Thoughts turn to that day so long ago.
The day when Christ was born,
The day when Christ the Lord was born.
The day when Christ was born,
That glorious day when Christ was born.

 

Reprise (at the end of the performance)

Holy child! Wondrous birth!
Creator of the universe!
Take it in, if you can,
The mighty God became a man.
The day when Christ was born,
The day when Christ the Lord was born.

Born to die, Lamb of God,
The pathway to the cross He trod.
Oh the grace! Oh the love!
Oh the gift that came from heaven above!
The day when Christ was born,
The day when Christ the Lord was born.
The day when Christ was born,
That glorious day when Christ was born.
