Representative Text

1. Carol, children, Christ is here!
Carol for this baby dear!
This is man, but God the more;
Sing beside the stable door!

Sing, O children, come and sing!
Praise our Christ and praise our King!
Gladdest night, most happy morn,
Christ our Lord this day is born!

2. This our King without a crown
In a manger is laid down;
As the maid with meekest hands
Wraps him all in swathing bands. [Refrain]

3. Sing our best, both young and old,
Never heart this time be cold;
Never eye of faith be dim,
Come and love and worship him! [Refrain]
