"Infant Holy, Infant Lowly" by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir

This music video, set in a prison, is certainly unique . . . and effective. It moved me deeply.


Infant holy, infant lowly,
for his bed a cattle stall.
Oxen lowing, little knowing,
Christ the babe is Lord of all.
Swift are winging angels singing,
Noels ringing, tidings bringing.
Christ the babe is Lord of all.

Flocks were sleeping, shepherds keeping
vigil till the morning new
saw the glory, heard the story,
tidings of a gospel true.
Thus rejoicing, free from sorrow,
praises voicing, greet the morrow.
Christ the babe was born for you.

    Agree with you, it is a very moving music video. Aren't we all prisoners of our sins and habits? Jesus Christ alone unlocks our prisons and sets us free.
    Our gratitude for Him should know no bounds.

  2. Yes, we've made ourselves prisoners. But we hold the key to unlock the prison door, if we'll just turn it. Everything else has been done for us.
