Programme Note
Patrick Hawes The King's Carol (1997)
Behold the King!
Bidden by a king,
borne on an ass by a young virgin.
Born a King His Kingdom to bring

Behold the King!
His court a stable in an inn,
wakeful animals His praises sing.
Born a King His peace to bring.

Behold the King
enthroned in straw!
Who frightened shepherds first adored.
Born a King new hope to bring.

Behold the King!
His mother a Queen,
robed in grace-full pverty.
Born a King, Love to bring.

Behold our King
and God and sing
of his majestic emptying!
Born with no thing His Kingdom to bring
