Round yon Vir - gin Moth - er and Child. Ho - ly In-fant so
ten - der and mild,
O holy Child of Bethlehem,
Descend to us, we pray!
Be bora in us to-day.
The great glad tidings tell;
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, 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,
Set at God's right hand on high,

1. Come, ye loft - y, come, ye low - ly, Let your songs of glad-ness ring;
Hark! the heaven of heavens is ringing,
Christ the Lord to man is born!
Welcome, welcome, Christmas morn?
Smiles as through the ages past;
