Here In My Arms

As part of the #LightTheWorld initiative to promote service this Christmas, several beautiful videos have been released by talented Mormon artists. Today, enjoy a new video by America’s Got Talent finalist Evie Clair singing a duet with Rosevelt Rawls of composer Rob Gardner’s new Christmas song “Here in my Arms.” (sheet music available)

This video places emphasis on the divine calling of motherhood and the special ways that Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ was able to give Jesus the gift of lifelong service as His mother.

Enjoy – MoSop

HERE IN MY ARMS – LYRICS BY ROB GARDNER

Here in my arms,
Robed in the moonlight,
Promise of old,
Newborn Salvation,
What shall I give?
What can I offer?
Only a stable to keep you warm.

Here in my arms,
Crowned with the starlight,
Son of a King, God of our Fathers,
What shall I give?
What can I offer?
Only a manger to rest your head.

And when you cry what shall I give you?
For I have naught to calm your fears.
Oh there is little I can offer,
But just my heart and my own tears.

Oh there is little I can offer,
But all I have is what I’ll give.

Here in my arms,
Hailed by the morning,
Baby divine,
My own Salvation,
What shall I give?
What can I offer?
Only a mother to raise you up and hold you in my arms!
What can I offer?
Only a mother to love you.

God-and-Mother

DAY 5 of #LightTheWorld is an invitation to “Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother”

  1. We watched the Christmas Choir presentation last night on television, and I spotted you on the left front row. It was an amazing show. Makes me wish I could sing. Thanks โ€” a job well done.
