1. See, amid the winter’s snow, born for us on earth below, see the Lamb of God appears, promised from eternal years.
Refrain: Hail, redemption’s happy dawn! Sing through all Jerusalem, “Christ is born in Bethlehem.”
2. Lo, within a manger lies He Who built the starry skies; He, Who throned in height sublime, sits amid the cherubim!
3. Say, ye holy shepherds say, what your joyful news today; wherefore have ye left your sheep on the lonely mountain steep?
4. “As we watched at dead of night, lo, we saw a wondrous light; angels singing ‘Peace on earth’ told us of the Savior’s birth.”
5. Sacred Infant, all divine, what a tender love was Thine; thus to come from highest bliss down to such a world as this!
6. Teach, O teach us, holy Child, by Thy face so meek and mild, teach us to resemble Thee in Thy sweet humility!
