Little child­ren, do you know
Who it was that long ago
In a low­ly stall was born
On the first glad Christ­mas morn?

Yes, we know that God above
In the won­der of His love
As a ho­ly babe was born
To the world on Christ­mas morn.

Do you know who told the earth
All about His sac­red birth,
Filled the earth with lov­ely song
Voiced His prais­es loud and long?

Yes, we know that an­gels bright
Broke the still­ness of the night
Praising Him who came below
Thus His won­drous love to show.

Let us then with sweet ac­cord
Praise our Sav­ior, Christ the Lord,
Praise His name and sing again,
Peace on earth, good will to men.
