Lyrics

Sing, O children, softly sing,
He was born our Savior King,
In a manger laid to rest,
Jesus Prince of Peace.

Refrain

Let your happy voices rise,
Songs exultant to the skies,
Singing our Redeemer’s praise,
Christ is Prince always.

Sing, O children, of His birth,
He the ruler of the earth,
Homeless on His mother’s breast,
Jesus Prince of Peace.

Refrain

Sing, O children, of His loss,
How He died upon the cross,
How He intercedes for us,
Jesus Prince of Peace.

Refrain

Sing, O children, that He lives,
And is waiting to forgive,
Only come to Him and live,
Jesus, Prince of Peace.
