1 Children, hail the holy Stranger
Who descended from above;
Who in Bethlehem’s lowly manger
Showed the Father’s boundless love.
Babe of Bethlehem renownèd,
Bearer of man’s sin and pain,
Now with wondrous glory crownèd,
Blessèd Stranger, come again.
2 Wave on high your palms before Him;
Loud your glad hosannas sing;
With the voice of praise adore Him,
Hail Him as the children’s king! [Refrain]
3 While the proud and great are scorning,
Higher sound the rapturous lays!
For from lips of little children,
Hath the Lord perfected praise. [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #9561
