A Maiden Most Gentle
trad. French, arranged by Andrew Carter
sung by The Choir of King's College, Cambridge
A maiden most gentle and tender we sing,
Of Mary the mother of Jesus our King.
How bless’d is the birth of her heavenly child,
Who came to redeem us in Mary so mild.
The archangel Gabriel foretold by his call,
The Lord of creation and Saviour of all.
Three kings came to worship with gifts rich and rare,
And marvelled in awe at the babe in her care.
Rejoice and be glad at this Christmas we pray,
Sing praise to the Saviour sing end-less.
