Lyrics

See him born the divine Christ child,
Sound forth the pipe and clash the cymbal,
See him born the divine Christ child,
Sing to welcome the Saviour mild.

Prophets o'er four thounsand years,
told us of this time of glory,
Prophets o'er four thousand years,
told us of this happy hour.

In a stable laid in straw,
Lowly comes the Lord of heaven,
In a stable laid in straw,
Comes to us the King of Kings.

Jesus Lord of heaven most high,
Child so tiny in a manger,
Jesus Lord of heaven most high,
Enter in our hearts and reign.
