1 O come, little children; come one and come all,
O come to the manger in Bethlehem's stall,
And see what our Father in heaven above
Has sent to us all on this earth with his love.
2 O see in the manger so meek and so mild,
O see in the soft light the heavenly Child,
In swaddling clothes folded, his beauty more sweet
Than angels, whose voices his lowly birth greet.
3 His bed, little children, a manger with hay;
His Mother and Joseph in ecstasy pray,
The shepherds in wonder their glad worship bring,
While chorus of angels sweet Glorias sing.
