1 Oh, come, little children, oh, come, one and all,
to Bethlehem's stable, in Bethlehem's stall,
and see with rejoicing this glorious sight,
Our Father in heaven has sent us this night.
2 Oh, see in the manger, in hallowed light
a star throws its beam on this holiest sight.
In clean swaddling clothes lies the heavenly Child,
more lovely than angels, this Baby so mild.
3 Oh, there lies the Christ Child, on hay and on straw;
the shepherds are kneeling before Him with awe.
And Mary and Joseph smile on Him with love,
While angels are singing sweet songs from above.
