Comments for this piece:
From Maili Black: We did this song last year for Christmas verses 1,2,5, and 6. It is so simple and beautiful. It is also one of the only Christmas songs that speaks of the premortal world. This song such a peace to our meeting and was well loved. I'm thinking of also using it this year.
More about Rick Graham:
I am a self-taught pianist that originally hails from Pennsylvania. I have a love of music that spans several decades. My Grandmother instilled in me the gift of listening to the sound of music no matter where it was. I was raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but sang as a young boy soprano in a boys choir for another church. Those years of learning music and techniques would forever stay with me as well as playing the recorder. I am married and am a grandfather and find great joy in my posterity. I moved to the Salt Lake area a couple years ago for employment and love it here (although I do miss my children and grandchildren terribly). I am humbled to be a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir as a music missionary. I have been truly blessed and acknowledge all the gifts and blessings that I enjoy to Him, my Savior.
I wanted to write a Christmas hym that not only expresses the Savior's birth, but also tells of our divine truths - that it was, and is all part of Heavenly Father's plan. This could be sung in solos, sections, a capella, and even a descant at the end. If you want the descant, le me know and I will be happy to do so. In the Christmas season apporoaching, may we all pause and stop to reflect on the little lamb born for all of us.

Lyrics: 1. Little lamb in manger stall,
ox and sheep in silence awed.
We behold his tender face,
Jesus, Savior of the human race.
2. Little lamb, thy birth foretold
from thy servants young and old.
Prophesied from ages past
now fulfilled our Savior comes at last.
3. Little lamb, oh blessed One!
Thou art God's begotten Son.
Born to Mary, virgin mild.
God incarnate and born mortal child.
4. Little lamb, angels are here
and to shepherds they appear.
Telling them of joys and grace.
Go to Bethlehem and go with haste.
5. Little lamb, fulfill the plan
back with Father it began
when we heard these words divine:
"Send me and the glory all be Thine!"
6. Little lamb, our joy, our all!
May our hearts receive the call.
Loud hosannas, let us sing
to our Lord, and lamb; Eternal King!
