One more song to add from Dan Fogelberg's 199 album First Christmas Morning.
Most of the songs on the album are either trad., from known composers, or instrumental only, but there are 3 for which Dan wrote both lyrics and music and I also posted his version/arrangement of the Medieval carol "This Endris Night."
CHRIST THE KING
Notes from Dan's website:
("Another of my own carols that I wrote in about 10 minutes in a flash of inspiration one Christmas in the early 90's. The arrangement is very Old-Country Austrian with a few nods to Bach and Beethoven.")
Listen to audio clip/
Christ the King, born in a manger,
Christ the King is born on this day.
All of nature joins the rejoicing!
Banish misfortune away! Banish misfortune away!
Lift your voice, join in the singing,
Lift your voice in a song of good will,
Lift your heart to the glorious season,
Bid all your sorrows be still. Bid all your sorrows be still.
(Repeat First Verse)
