393. Infant Holy, Infant Lowly

1 Infant holy,
Infant lowly,
For his bed a cattle stall;
Oxen lowing,
Little knowing
Christ the babe is Lord of all.
Swift are winging
Angels singing,
Noels ringing,
Tidings bringing:
Christ the babe is Lord of all.

2 Flocks were sleeping:
Shepherds keeping
Vigil till the morning new,
Saw the glory,
Heard the story,
Tidings of a gospel true.
Thus rejoicing,
Free from sorrow,
Praises voicing
Greet the morrow:
Christ the babe was born for you.
