It doesn’t get more down home than Kate & Steve singing a new carol in The Quiet American‘s home in Hood River on a winter’s morning before Christmas. Kate Power, Steve Einhorn, Aaron, Henry & Nicole Keim sang Mary’s Baby from the first refrain and captured it here on the wing. Won’t you join us and sing along?

MARY’S BABY

Chorus
Come sing! Shepherds & kings,
Sing for the babe in the manger.
Peace and joy to bring, and
Bless you wherever you go.

Out in the wood on a wintry night,
The evening star shone so brightly, so bright;
And there in the manger, a baby boy born,
To Mary, a baby was born!

Out on the road, through the desert three kings,
Did ride with their eyes and their senses so keen,
For a sign of the King they were seeking, foreseen,
For a sign of the King forseen.

The cattle and horses, the piggies and sheep
All huddled up close for the Baby to keep,
Swaddled there in the arms of His Mother, asleep;
Swaddled there in her arms asleep.

Bridge
“Mary’s baby!”, the angels sing,
“Mary’s baby!”, Prince of Peace!”

Now Mother and baby are gone long ago,
This story is Older than Older than Old…
Still on every Christmas morning is told,
On Christmas morning is told.

That there in the wood on a wintry night
The evening star shone so brightly, so bright!
And there in a manger a baby boy born
To Mary a baby was born
Chorus

Come sing! Shepherds & kings,
Sing for the babe in the manger.
Peace and joy to bring, and
Bless you wherever you go.
