From the poignant- and humorous Christmas Musical, "Lost On The Way To Bethlehem", this tender lullaby(number 8 of 9 original songs) describes a mother's feelings about her baby - and in particular, Mary's heart as she cradles her babe- the Christ Child. She reflects that: "A mother can't know what her child's life will be, but tonight, oh tonight, You are safe here with me." Sharing in her message is Joseph, the Street Person, and young girl, Shelley, who have not only found a place for the camel now, but a real place in their hearts for The Christ Child - newly found by the Street Person. *This work is also found in the shorter, sacred version: "Mary, Bring The Baby".

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
