Christmas Song Lyrics
Compiled by Charles P. Scott

The Shepherd's Carol
Mary, Mary hush, see the Child
Joseph, Joseph, look see how mild
This is Jesus; this is our King
This is our Savior, his praises we sing.

All God's children, come to adore
Bringing gifts of love evermore.
This is Jesus; this is our King
This is our Savior, his praises we sing.

About This Song
The "Shepherd's Pipe Carol" is a modern Christmas carol composed by John Rutter. He composed the carol whilst he was an undergraduate at university in 1966 with it being published a year later at the behest of David Willcocks.

He stated that he believed his inspiration for writing it came from when he sang as a boy soprano during the opera "Amahl and the Night Visitors" and heard pipe music as the title character headed for Bethlehem with the Biblical Magi.

The lyrics of the "Shepherd's Pipe Carol", set after the annunciation to the shepherds, are in third person about a shepherd boy playing pipe music on the way to Bethlehem. The boy later states in the carol that he will perform his music for the baby Jesus when he reaches the stable where the Star of Bethlehem was located.

A blessed and wonderful Christmas to all of you.
