Representative Text

1. Little children, come and learn,
Learn the sweet old story;
Christ was once a child like you,
Now is King of glory.

Ring, bells ring, Christ is King,
Christ is King of glory;
Christ was born in Bethlehem,
Christ, the King of glory.

2. Stars and angels sang aloud,
Peace on earth, and glory
To the God who from above
Sent this wondrous story. [Refrain]

3. Stars and angels sing again,
Tell the gladsome story!
Answer to the joyous bells,
Christ is King of glory. [Refrain]
