228. He Is Born

Refrain:
He is born, the holy Child,
play the oboe and bagpipes merrily!
He is born, the holy Child,
sing we all of the Savior mild.

Refrain:
Il est né, le divin Enfant,
Jouez hautbois rèsonnez musettes!
Il est né, le divin Enfant,
Chantons tous Son avènement!

1 Thru long ages of the past,
prophets have foretold his coming;
thru long ages of the past,
now the time has come at last!(Refrain)

2 O how lovely, O how pure
is this perfect child of heaven;
O how lovely, O how pure
gracious gift to humankind!(Refrain)

3 Jesus, Lord of all the world,
coming as a child among us,
Jesus, Lord of all the world,
grant to us thy heavenly peace.(Refrain)
