A Musical “Merry Christmas!” from Wyoming Catholic College
This piece, “David’s Town,” was composed by Dr. Peter Kwasniewski (a professor at Wyoming Catholic for the first eleven years of its existence), and features lyrics by Dr. Jeremy Holmes (currently Professor of Theology at the College).
Wishing the warmth and blessings of Christmas on all our friends and supporters.
The Wyoming Catholic College Community
David’s town bedded down, and the world was so cold;
Song was stilled, hearts were chilled, and the world was grown old;
Then was born Christ the Morn, Shepherd of the one fold:
David’s town bore the crown, as the prophets foretold.
Adam’s race, shorn of grace, begs of Mary reprieve:
“Be we blessed through your Yes that we too may believe,
By what’s heard God’s own Word in our hearts to conceive.
Guiding star fore the dawn, be our true Christmas Eve.”
Mary’s boy, be my joy when the martyrs shall sing,
When the Judge shall appear and the trumpet shall ring.
In the day of dismay to the Infant I cling:
Who the Baby has borne needs not fly from the King.
