1 Give heed, my heart, lift up thine eyes;
Who is it in you manger lies?
Who is this Child, so young and fair?
The blessed Christ-child lieth there.
2 Ah, dearest Jesus, holy Child,
Make Thee a bed, soft-undefiled,
Within my heart, that it may be
A quiet chamber kept for Thee.
3 My heart for very joy doth leap,
My lips no more can silence keep;
I too must sing with joyful tongue,
That sweetest ancient cradle-song:
4 Glory to God in highest heaven,
Who unto man His Son hath given;
While angels sing with pious mirth,
A glad new year to all the earth.
