He is born, the divine Christ child,
play the oboe and bagpipes merrily!
He is born, the holy child,
sing we all of the Savior mild.

1 Through long ages of the past
prophets have foretold his coming;
through long ages of the past,
now the time has come at last! [Refrain]

2 Oh, how lovely, oh, how pure
is this perfect child of heaven;
oh, how lovely, oh, how pure
gracious gift of God sent down. [ Refrain]

3 Jesus, Lord of all the world,
coming as a child among us;
Jesus, Lord of all the world,
grant to us your heavenly peace. [Refrain]
