She brought forth her firstborn son…and laid Him in a manger.

This is another hymn with 2 equally delightful melodies – whenever I can, I try to nudge the songleader into singing both! (Update: Strangely enough, only one week after I posted this hymn, I was asked to do just that – it was great getting to play both melodies! Let that be a lesson to me – I must be careful what I wish for because I just might get it! Good thing I wished for something melodic!)
