1 Holy Babe, in lowly manger
Wise men bowed the knee,
Holy Child, in sacred temple
Sages learned of Thee.
Holy Christ, in lofty heaven
Our Lord, will ever be,
Holy Christ, in lofty heaven
Our Lord, will ever be.

Refrain:
Jesus, our Lord, doth reign on high,
Jesus, to Thee, we now draw nigh,
And as we sing,
We crown Thee King,
Crown Thee King,
Jesus, our Lord, doth reign on high,
Jesus, to Thee, we now draw nigh,
Our voices raise in highest praise
Our voices raise in highest praise.

2 In the East, ‘neath heaven starry
Shepherds heard them tell,
Blessed light, O sacred story
Echoes still will swell.
Jesus, Lord, who came from heaven
Thou art salvation’s well,
Jesus, Lord, who came from heaven
Thou art salvation’s well. [Refrain]
