Kantor / Child of Light Octavo

Kantor / Child of Light Octavo

1.80

Daniel Kantor brings us another gem of a partner song. This haunting tune sings with What Child is This and features rich, provocative lyrics which explore the paradox of Christ's birth: Could it be that Creator, Builder, has no home in creation? In his house will he find no home? You're sure to love the piano accompaniment, which is beautiful enough to stand on its own as a simple advent reflection.

For unison voices and keyboard

If you're looking for an arrangement that celebrates additional vocal harmonies and instrumental color don't miss Tony Alonso's beautiful arrangement, also available in the store. It's a gem.

Song text:

Why only this darkened stable
embraced the dawn of new life?
Lowly manger to welcome our savior,
This child of night, needs our light.
Could it be that Creator, Builder,
has no home in creation?
In his house will he find no home?
Child of night needs your light.

Sleep, sleep as the morning daybreak
in song and sun shall arise.
Eyes of wonder look upward from under
The star of of night, Child of light.
In this winter of aging darkness
rays of youth will awaken.
Warming hears of unspoken love, 
Star of night, child of light.
