I Knew My Lord Jesus (Bridget O’Malley) – Flute and Violin

Lyrics ~ 3 verses

A Hymn For St Andrew, Dedicated to the Church of St Andrew, Ogbourne St Andrew, Wiltshire.

Meter: 12 12 11 10

I knew my Lord Jesus in lands so far away,
In the land of the Jordan and David’s bright throne.
The Lord, he sent me to bring you the good news,
To heal and forgive, wherever I roam.

I know my Lord Jesus and walk with him daily,
Through the fields and the forest, a long way from home.
My Lord, he’s with me, as I speak of his love;
In God’s grace on earth, I’m never alone.

So meet my Lord Jesus and walk with him gladly,
And bring blessings and peace ever into your home,
Our Lord, he’s with us, our friend and redeemer,
So smile now and laugh, we’re never alone.

Leanabh an àigh (Bunessan)

Lyrics

Leanabh an àigh, an Leanabh aig Màiri
Rugadh san stàball, Rìgh nan Dùl;
Thàinig do’n fhàsach, dh’fhuiling ’n ar n-àite
Son’ iad an àireamh bhitheas dhà dlùth!

Ged a bhios leanabain aig rìghrean na talmhainn
An greadhnachas garbh is anabarr mùirn,
’S geàrr gus am falbh iad, ’s fasaidh iad anfhann,
An àilleachd ’s an dealbh a’ searg san ùir.

Cha b’ionann ’s an t-Uan thàinig gur fuasgladh
Iriosal, stuama ghluais e’n tùs;
E naomh gun truailleachd, Cruithfhear an t-sluaigh,
Dh’éirich e suas le buaidh o ùir.

Leanabh an àigh, mar dh’aithris na fàidhean;
’S na h-àinglean àrd’, b’e miann an sùl;
’S E ’s airidh air gràdh ’s air urram thoirt dhà
Sona an àireamh bhitheas dhà dlùth.

Child in the manger (Bunessan)

Lyrics

Child in the manger, Infant of Mary,
Outcast and Stranger, Lord of all,
Child Who inherits all our transgressions,
All our demerits on Him fall.

Once the most holy Child of salvation
Gently and lowly lived below.
Now as our glorious mighty Redeemer,
See Him victorious o’er each foe.

Prophets foretold Him, Infant of wonder;
Angels behold Him on His throne.
Worthy our Savior of all our praises;
Happy forever are His own.

The original Gaelic version of this carol can be found here: Leanabh an àigh
