Once in Royal David's City

Words: Cecil Frances Alexander, 1848
Music: IRBY, Henry J. Gauntlett, 1849, arr. Jackson Henry

This arrangement of a well beloved Christmas hymn is intended to be used when played by a folk ensemble (i.e., guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, bass, brushed snare, etc.). Add vocal harmonies as needed as the congregation sings the tune exactly as they know it from The United Methodist Hymnal.
