I wrote this piece right after my second daughter was born.. It was almost Christmas time and I thought to myself "this baby is everything to me. She's just a baby, but she's everything." The words "just one child" spilled out and I immediately heard a melody.
This is the story of Jesus' birth and how in awe his mother and father must have been when they looked down and saw him- they knew this beautiful baby would change everything, The text is set to easily accessible 4 part harmonies and mixolydian melody.
