Unto Us a Child is Given

God Made Man and Prince of Peace

Unto Us a Child is Given was written by the Benedictine Nuns of Stanbrook Abbey. It was first published in 1971 as part of the Stanbrook Abbey Hymnal. They have recently moved from their former Victorian era Abbey to a new home in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park in North Yorkshire, UK. Visitors are welcome join the Sisters in the chapel for Mass and Divine Office. Unto us a Child is Given is sung to the tune: Drakes Broughton by Edward Elgar. It is used in the Liturgy of the Hours during Christmas.
