1. In the lowly manger lying,
See, the lovely Babe appears!
Round Him beams the light undying,
And His smile thro’ darkness cheers!

Angels wake the blessèd chorus,
Lo! the night hath passed away!
See, the King who reigneth o’er us
Was a Babe on Christmas day!

2. Wond’ring shepherds watching nightly,
Saw the star above them shine,
And it led them, gleaming brightly,
To the Lord of love divine! [Refrain]

3. Tell the sweet and wondrous story,
How the Son of God on high,
Left His home of peace and glory,
In the realms beyond the sky! [Refrain]

4. Sing of how He came to mortals
Thro’ His love and kindliness!
How He opened Heav’n’s bright portals,
All His children there to bless! [Refrain]
