Representative Text

1 A little child on the earth has been born;
A little child on the earth has been born;
He came to the earth for the sake of us all,
He came to the earth for the sake of us all.

2 He came to the earth for the sake of us all,
He came to the earth for the sake of us all,
And wishes us all a Happy New Year,
And wishes us all a Happy New Year.
