Precious is the story
How the King of glory
Came to earth a lowly child;
Came a little stranger,
Sleeping in a manger,
Simple, pure, and undefiled.
Christ our Savior, blessèd Savior,
Came to earth a lowly child.

Shepherds watch were keeping,
While their flocks were sleeping,
In Judea far away,
When an angel chorus
Sang a song so glorious
That it echoes still today;
Sang of Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
Sang of Christ, the lowly child.

With a glory beaming,
And a radiance streaming,
Shone a little stranger star;
And the wise men daring,
Gold and treasures bearing,
Journeyed in its light afar;
Came to Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
Came to Christ, the lowly child.
