Note:  Child of the Poor is a counter melody to What Child Is This.  In the notes for the song in my music it indicates that Vs. 1 of Song 1 is done first, followed by Vs. 1 of Song 2, then Vs 2 of Song 1, then Vs. 2 of Song 2, then the choir splits with half doing Vs. 3 of Song 1 while the other half does Vs. 3 of Song 2.

This version of the two hymns on YouTube is almost the same as the music in the hymnal - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEkdr62eVMY.  Please listen to it a few times before next Sunday if possible.
