Words by Edward CaswallJohn GossKey signature: G major (1 sharp)Time signature: 4/4Public Domain1. 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.
