Discover beautiful hymn texts
In this inspiring collection, Michael Joncas offers hymns of the day for each Sunday and solemnity throughout Advent and Christmastide—for the entire three-year Lectionary cycle!

Reflect on Scripture with insightful commentaries
Opening with an introduction to using hymns of the day, Within Our Hearts Be Born displays each hymn in poetic stanzas, as well as in four-part settings of beloved hymn tunes. Michael also includes insightful commentaries that connect the texts to the Scripture reading and provide helpful notes for priests, choir directors and singers.

Enrich worship throughout Advent and Christmas
"Raw the Voice and Fierce the Message" (Second Sunday of Advent, Year A) carries John the Baptist's message to today's worshipers. Intricately constructed in its poetic form, "O Ancient Love, Processing Through the Ages" is a wonderful selection for Christmas Vigil Mass. "When Jesus Comes to Jordan's Stream" (Baptism of the Lord, Year A) is rich in theological reflection.

Inspire congregational singing
His songs have become mainstays in parish repertoires around the world, from "A Voice Cries Out" to "On Eagle's Wings." Showcasing beautifully written texts by this gifted composer, Within Our Hearts Be Born presents 24 contemporary hymns for the Advent and Christmas seasons to inspire congregational singing.
