Alternate Tune:


In a low­ly man­ger sleep­ing,
Calm and still a babe we see,
’Tis the Ho­ly Child of pro­mise,
Light of all the world is He.

Holy an­gels sing His wel­come
In the realms of glo­ry bright,
While the morn­ing stars around Him
Fall in soft and ten­der light.

Blessèd Sav­ior, dear Re­deem­er,
King of Ju­dah, Prince of Peace,
Rock of Ag­es, Star of na­tions,
Thy do­min­ion ne’er shall cease.

The Nativity
