Puer Natus Est / A Child is Born
Daniel Snoke – chart \ youtube

I love this simple gregorian chant originally composed as an introit for a Christmas day Mass (Catholic service). The text of the antiphon is taken from Isaiah 9:6. This version is recorded by Pittsburg artist and worship leader Daniel Snoke for our Christmas compilation.


LYRICS:

A child is born unto us a son has been given,
A child is born unto us a son has been given.Upon whose shoulder power rests;
of his peace will be no end.
Upon whose shoulder power rests;
of his peace will be no end.He shall be called Almighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
He shall be called Almighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

My soul will magnify the Lord,
Who has done mighty things for me.
My soul will magnify the Lord,
Who has done mighty things for me.
