Lo! He Comes an Infant Stranger
This version of the carol was published in Penzance in 1870 by F. Rodda in A Selection of Carols, Pieces and Anthems, suitable for Christmas. Thomas Merritt of Illogan wrote this tune for the carol, the first two stanzas of which are by Bishop Mant and the third appears to be unique to Cornwall. This carol was also sung among the miners of Michigan.
