MEGAN BASHAM, HOST: Today is Thursday, December 26th. Good morning! This is The World and Everything in It from listener-supported WORLD Radio. I’m Megan Basham.
MYRNA BROWN, HOST: And I’m Myrna Brown. All this week we’ve concluded each program with a Christmas hymn. Our last selection is a very old carol handed down for generations. The lyrics come from before the 12th century, and its traditional Irish tune likely predates the 18th century.
BASHAM: Its opening stanza calls each of us to consider what God has done in sending us His beloved Son. Here’s the Wheaton College Concert Choir from a 2016 television performance—singing the “Wexford Carol,” arranged by John William Trotter.
