Representative Text

1 A Babe in the manger,
A song in the sky;
On earth benediction,
Rejoicing on high.
A glory for Judah,
A wonderful Light,
To lighten the Gentiles
In sorrow and night.

A Babe in the manger,
A song in the sky;
On earth benediction,
Rejoicing on high.

2 A Prince and a Saviour,
Immanuel, King;
An unfailing kingdom
Of blessing to bring.
A kingdom of mercy,
Of love, and of peace,
Whose power shall ever
And ever increase. [Refrain]

3 Glad dayspring from Heaven,
Break bright on our night;
For morning bring gladness,
For darkness give light.
Hail, Son of the Highest,
Redeemer divine;
Heav’n’s hosts are thy heralds,
The star is thy sign. [Refrain]

4 Prepared is thy pathway,
In passion of pain;
Eternal thy glory,
Eternal thy reign.
Priest, Prophet and Saviour;
Sing, hosts of the sky,
Shine, stars, at your brightest;
Redemption is nigh. [Refrain]
