1 Et Barn er sødt i Betlehem,
I Betlehem,
Thi glæder sig Jerusalem,
Halleluja, Halleluja!

2 Han lagdes i et Krybberum,
Et Krybberum
Ei Ende har hans Herredom.
Halleluja, Halleluja!

3 Men Okse der og Asen stod,
Og Asen stod,
Og saa den gud og Herre god,
Halleluja, Halleluja!

4 Af Saba kom de Konger tre
De Konger tre,
Guld, røgels', Myrra ofred de.
Halleluja, Halleluja!

5 Han fødtes af en Jomfru skjær,
En Jomfru skjær,
Fornden Mand hans Fødsetl er.
Halleluja, Halleluja!

6 Vort Kjød og Blod han paa sig tog,
Han paa sig tog,
Uskab af Djæv'len blev han dog.
Halleluja, Halleluja!

7 I Kjød og Blod er han os lig,
Er han os lig,
I Synden er han os ulig.
Halleluja, Halleluja!

8 Dermed gjør han os lig med sig,
Os lig med sig,
Og fører os til Himmerig.
Halleluja, Halleluja!

9 For samme nu den Naadens Tid
Den Naadens Tid
vi love Gud, for Herre blid.
Halleluja, Halleluja!

10 Lov, Tak og Pris is Evighed,
I Evighed,
Den hellige Tresoldighed!
Halleluja, Halleluja!
