1 In the hallowed manger
Sleeps the Holy Child;
Love and light shine from Him,
Though the winter’s wild:
Earth-storms yet may gather,
Looming large and loud,
Time has touched th’Eternal,
Light is in the cloud.

Refrain:
Glory to God!
Hark, how the welkin rings,
And night is wooed to mirth:
High minstrels hover
On adoring wings,
And breathe God’s peace,
God’s peace, on earth.

2 At the hallowed manger,
Bowed in faith before,
Love’s divinest vision,
Simple swains adore:
Still true hearts discover
That entrancing sight,
Still the Babe of Bethlehem
Leads pure souls to light. [Refrain]

3 At the hallowed manger,
In our Babe’s pure birth,
Wistful hope is finding
Sanctity for earth:
For the light that reddened
Once that midnight sky,
Flames where still that Child heart
Saves humanity. [Refrain]
