Born to Wear a Crown

But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels… crowned with glory and honour…

Hebrews 2:9 KJV

About the Song

The accompaniment for the duet version of this song is quite different from the SSATB or SSA. I didn’t do a new choral or women’s arrangement using the duet accompaniment simply because I like the original better for a choral setting.

Lyrics

Lo, a Child, born to low estate,
Lies where ox and lamb are fed
Nor was found a place more worthy,
For this Child no softer bed

Born to wear a crown of glory,
Brighter far than earth affords
For this Child laid in a manger
Is King of kings and Lord of lords

Lo His palace is a stable,
And His robes are swaddling bands
Starlight the gem upon his brow,
Love the scepter in His hand

Born to wear a crown of glory,
Brighter far than earth affords
For this Child laid in a manger
Is King of kings and Lord of lords

Holy infant, Son of Mary,
Born in Bethlehem this night
He shall be enthroned in heaven,
Robed in honor, robed in light

Born to wear a crown of glory,
Brighter far than earth affords
For this Child laid in a manger
Is King of kings and Lord of lords

    This is exactly what I was seeking– a new Christmas song w/ an inspiring tune that focuses on Jesus’s identity. It’s complex enough to sing unison, but has the option to add harmony. Thank you very much!
