You get pdfs of the piano/SATB score and the vocal score, mp3 of the song, rehearsal mp3s of each of the four vocal parts, and piano-only mp3. In the Amidons’ book’Fifty-five Anthems for the Small Church Choir‘. Sung here by Zara Bode, soloist, and the Starry Mountain Singers, with Ron Kelley on saxophone. This arrangement was inspired by a Youtube of Julia Nunes solo looping arrangement of the song that, sadly, seems to have been taken down.


Born in the Night
by Jeffrey Ainger

Born in the night, Mary’s child.
A long way from your home:
Coming in need, Mary’s child,
Born in a borrowed room.

Clear shining light, Mary’s child.
Your face lights up our way:
Light of the world, Mary’s child,
Dawn on our darkened day.

Truth of our life, Mary’s child,
You tell us God is good:
Yes it is true, Mary’s child.
Shown on your cross of wood.

Hope of the world, Mary’s child,
You’re coming soon to reign:
King of the earth, Mary’s child,
Walk in our streets again.
