Round yon Vir - gin Moth - er and Child. Ho - ly In-fant so

O holy Child of Bethlehem,

Descend to us, we pray!
Cast out our sin, and enter in;

Be bora in us to-day.
We hear the Christmas angels

The great glad tidings tell;
O come to us, abide with us,
Our Lord Emmanuel. Amen.

was that mother mild, Je - sus Christ her lit - tle Child. A-men.

He came down to earth from heaven,

Who is God and Lord of all, And His shelter was a stable,

And His cradle was a stall: With the poor, and mean, and lowly, Lived on earth our Saviour holy.

Tears and smiles like us He knew : And He feeleth for our sadness, And He shareth in our gladness.

And our eyes at last shall see Him,

Through His own redeeming love, For that Child so dear and gentle

Is our Lord in heaven above;
And He leads His children on
To the place where He is gone.

And, through all His wondrous childhood,

He would honor and obey, Love and watch the lowly maiden

In whose gentle arms He lay: Christian children all must be Mild, obedient, good as He.

For He is our childhood's pattern,

Day by day like us He grew; He was little, weak, and helpless,

Not in that poor lowly stable,

With the oxen standing by,
We shall see Him, but in heaven,

Set at God's right hand on high,
When, like stars, His children crowned,
All in white, shall wait around. Amen.

Teach, o teach us, holy Child,
By Thy face so meek and mild,
Teach us to resemble Thee
In Thy sweet humility!

Hail, thou ever-blessed morn!
Hail, Redemption's happy dawn!
Sing through all Jerusalem,
Christ is born in Bethlehem !

Hark! the heaven of heavens is ringing,

Christ the Lord to man is born!
Are not all our hearts too singing-

Welcome, welcome, Christmas morn?
Still the Child, all power possessing,

Smiles as through the ages past;
And the song of Christmas blessing
Sweetly sinks to rest at last. Amen.
