“Be It unto Me,” New Era, Nov. 1992, 10–11Special Issue:Welcome to the British IslesIn Tune:Be It unto MeWords and music by Carys Anne IrwinChorus:Be it unto me according to Thy wordWas the message Mary gave unto the LordSo the Christmas tale beganFor the benefit of manAnd it changes lives wherever it is heard.1. A boy was born that nightIn a stable in the hayAnd we’ll have life eternalIf we follow in His way.Chorus2. His message brings us joyAnd shows us how to loveBy following His teachingsWith help from God above.Chorus3. At a time when peace is scarceAnd all nations are at warWe need our Savior’s messageEven now, more than before.Ah, more than before.Copyright © 1992 by Carys Anne Irwin, All rights reserved.
