When Christ Was Born in Bethlehem

This lovely hymn appeared in the 1909 Deseret Sunday School Songs, and in the 1927, 1948, and 1950 LDS hymnals, but not the 1985 edition – which is a pity, because it is one of the very few genuinely Latter-day Saint Christmas hymn tunes, written by Ebenezer Beesley.
