1 Born to bless us, born to save!
Praise His name with joyful breath!
Sing through life, nor fear the grave!
Jesus lives to conquer death!
2 Every birth is changed from hence;
Each may take a pathway bright;
Reaching soon the tomb, but thence
Issuing in unfading light.
3 Humblest cradles now shall show,
Clearly show to loving eyes,
Oft while tears of rapture flow,
Flowerets born for Paradise.
4 Parents now shall sink to rest,
Hoping soon to clasp in Heaven,
Lovely as a seraph blest,
Every child whom God hath given.
5 Parents, children, young and old,
If but strong in faith and love,
Shall, with gratitude untold,
Oft foretaste the joys above.
6 Lowly Babe of Bethlehem!
Glorious Lord of life and light!
Humble branch of Jesse’s stem!
God! Thy grace is infinite.
