Night serene and fair,
Naught its peace can mar;
Lo! in skies above,
Dawns a radiant star.
Shepherds in the field,
Guarding safe their fold,
Mute with rapture kneel in worship,
Glory behold.

Refrain

’Neath yon heav’nly sign
Sleeps a child divine;
Bow in humble adoration,
Own Him as Lord.
Music in the sky,
Voices clear and high,
Harps of gold resounding
In sweetest accord.

White winged seraphs chant
Heaven’s triumph song;
Earth in gladness wakes,
Every note prolongs.
Answering hills send back,
Faint melodious strains;
Choirs celestial bring good tidings,
Sing grand refrains.

Refrain

Seek the manger low,
Haste your Lord to find;
Christ this day is born,
Savior of mankind.
In a shelter rude—
Lowly is the stall—
Lies a tiny royal stranger,
King over all.

Refrain
