89. A Babe is born in Bethlehem

1 A Babe is born in Bethlehem;
in Bethlehem;
Therefore rejoice, Jerusalem,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

2 He doth within a manger lie,
a manger lie;
Whose throne is set above the sky,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

3 Stillness was all the manger round,
the manger round;
The creature its Creator found,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

4 The wise men came, led by the star,
led by the star;
Gold, myrrh, and incense brought from far,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

5 His mother is the virgin mild,
the virgin mild;
And He the Father's only Child,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

6 Like us, in flesh of human frame,
of human frame,
Unlike in sin alone He came,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

7 The Holy Trinity be praised,
Hallelujah;
To God our ceaseless thanks be raised,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.
