There are many variations of this text, each with its own melody. Though the music varies, each version reflects the bright faith and unconditional love of a child learning to recognize and worship the Savior of the World when he first appeared as a tiny baby, born in Bethlehem. Quoting from several of the most familiar tunes, this setting creates a rich harmonic texture to adorn William Kirkpatrick’s melody and the anonymous text as found in the LDS Hymnal (HYMNS, 1985).
