This piece is an arrangement of the beautiful pentatonic tune SHENGYE JING, written by Qigui Shi. Long, lyrical lines support the gentle peacefulness of this carol. The descant (perhaps sung by a solo voice) echoes the title phrase in a haunting way and continues to sing the gifts of Christmas—peace, mercy, grace, goodness—born again.
