A familiar tune and Eucharist-focused text are combined to encourage the assembly’s participation during the Communion processional throughout the Christmas season. There is flexibility to tailor the length of the music to the length of the procession: An optional instrumental interlude (using the MUELLER tune of “Away in a Manger”) is included, as well as five verses that can be done in any combination, with as many or as few verses as desired, with or without the interlude. The C-instrument part is particularly suitable for recorder.
