1 In midnight's stillness
Clear a voice rings through:
"Rise up, you shepherds,
God is born to you!
Quickly go and find the Savior;
Bethlehem does shine with favor;
Haste to greet your Lord,
Haste to greet your Lord."

2 And what a wonder!
Babe in manger lies.
All that was pondered,
Seen with wond'ring eyes.
"God with us" in holy splendor,
Lowly hearts in worship render
Songs of greatest joy,
Songs of greatest joy.

3 Ah, welcome, Savior,
Whom we've long desired;
All generations
Have for you aspired.
Kings and prophets waited for you,
Yet the poor are first to know you,
Shepherd for us all,
Shepherd for us all.

4 Long have we waited,
Longing for your face;
Now we are sated
By your full embrace.
Food and drink for all who hunger,
We believe, adore and wonder,
Nurtured by your grace,
Nurtured by your grace.
