See in Yonder Manger Low

Words by Edward Caswall

1. See in yonder manger low, Born for us on earth below, See— the gentle Lamb appears, Promised from eternal years.
Refrain: Hail thou ever blessed morn; Hail redemption’s happy dawn; Sing through all Jerusalem, “Christ is born in Bethlehem!”
2. Lo, within a stable 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, oh, teach us, holy Child, By Thy face so meek and mild, Teach us to resemble Thee In Thy sweet humility.
