If Angels Sung a Savior’s Birth

Milford

This is a wonderful Christmas tune and text from the Sacred Harp for a small vocal ensemble.  Simple, joyful and heartfelt.

If Angels Sung a Savior’s Birth
mp3 | leadsheet | Midi

If angels sung a Savior’s birth,
If angels sung a Savior’s birth,
On that auspicious morn,
We well may imitate their mirth,
Now He again is born,
Now He again is born.
.
anonymous, 1802.
