Grundtvig Meter: 8.3.8.8 Appears in 8 hymnals Lyrics: 1 A Babe is born in Bethlehem, Bethlehem, Rejoice, rejoice, Jerusalem; Hallelujah, hallelujah. 2 A lowly virgin gave Him birth, Gave Him birth, Who rules the heavens and the earth; Hallelujah, hallelujah. 3 He in a simple manger lay, Manger lay, Whom angels praise with joy for aye; Hallelujah, hallelujah. 4 And wise men from the East did bring, East did bring, Gold, myrrh and incense to the King; Hallelujah, hallelujah. 5 Now all our fears have passed away, Passed away, The Savior blest was born today; Hallelujah, hallelujah. 6 God's blessed children we became, We became, And shall in heaven praise His name; Hallelujah, hallelujah. 7 Then like the angels we shall be, We shall be, God's holy presence we shall see; Hallelujah, hallelujah. 8 The angels there with great delight, Great delight, Will teach the song they sang this night, Hallelujah, hallelujah. 9 With gladsome praises we adore, We adore, Our Lord and Savior evermore; Hallelujah, hallelujah.

A babe lies in the cradle

Author: Paul England (c. 1863-1932) Meter: 7.6.7.6.6 Appears in 3 hymnals Lyrics: 1 A babe lies in the cradle, A little babe so dear, With noble light he shineth As shines a mirror clear, This little babe so dear. 2 The babe within the cradle Is Jesus Christ our Lord; To us all peace and amity At this good time afford Thou Jesus Christ our Lord. 3 Whoso would rock the cradle Where lies the gentle child, A lowly heart must lead him, By passions undefiled, As Mary pure and mild. 4 O Jesu, babe belovèd! O Jesu, babe divine! How mighty is thy wondrous love! Fill thou this heart of mine With that great love of thine.

A Babe Was Born, a Little One (Winter's Child)

Author: Daniel Charles Damon Meter: Irregular Appears in 1 hymnal First Line: A babe was born, a little one Lyrics: 1 A babe was born, a little one, in the dark'ning time of the year. What wondrous work was there begun, in the dark'ning time of the year? 2 The mother nursed a hungry child, in the dark'ning time of the year, sought shelter from the wind and wild, in the dark'ning time of the year. 3 The shepherds heard the angels sing, in the dark'ning time of the year. They ran to see the infant king, in the dark'ning time of the year. 4 The wise men saw a distant star, in the dark'ning time of the year, and bearing gifts, they traveled far, in the dark'ning time of the year. 5 The dawn came gray that winter day, in the dark'ning time of the year; but love was born that sunless morn, in the dark'ning time of the year!

A Ballad of Wise Men

Author: George Baird Meter: 8.6.8.6.8.6 Appears in 1 hymnal First Line: When that our gentle Lord was born Lyrics: 1. When that our gentle Lord was born, And cradled in the hay, There rode three wise men from the east— Three rich wise men were they— All in the starry night they came Their homage gifts to pay. 2. They got them down from camel-back, The cattle shed before, And in the darkness vainly sought A great latch on the door; Ho, this is strange, quoth Balthazar, Aye, strange, quoth Melchior. 3. Quoth Gaspar, I can find no hasp, Well hidden is the lock; The door, quoth Melchior, is stout And fast, our skill to mock; Quoth Balthazar, The little King Might wake, we dare not knock. 4. The three wise men they sat them down To wait for morning dawn, The cunning wards of that old door They thought and marveled on; Quoth they, No gate in all the East Hath bar-bolts tighter drawn. 5. Anon there came a little lad With lambskins for the King, He had no key, he raised no latch, He touched no hidden spring, But gently pushed the silent door And open it gan swing. 6. A miracle! a miracle! Cried out the wise men three; A little child hath solved the locks That could not opened be. In wonder spake the shepherd lad, It hath no locks, quoth he. Used With Tune: CONSOLATION (ULSTER) Text Sources: Rune and Rann, 1916
