Tune: [A little child so fair and bright]
Published in 2 hymnals
1 A little child so fair and bright
Is sent to us from heaven;
Before or since that Christmas night
Such gift was never given;
But when the time of God was come,
His Son did leave His heav'nly home
And found on earth a mother;
This Morning Star, this child of fame,
In lowliness among us came
To be our Lord and Brother.
2 Exalted in eternity
Is Jesus Christ, our Savior!
All honor to our Father be
For His unequaled favor!
Each Christmas day anew we raise
Our voices unto Him in praise,
In joyful adoration;
Though poor our hallelujahs ring.
In heaven countless voices sing
With ours in jubilation.
