Born in a manger, lowly and poor,
Willing the world’s dark frowns to endure,
Came the dear Lord, our Savior to be,
Wonderful love for thee and me.

Refrain

Wonderful love, wonderful love,
Wonderful love for thee and me;
Wonderful love, wonderful love,
Wonderful love for thee and me.

Tell of His love to those who are sad,
Bring them the news so wondrous and glad;
Tell them that Christ their helper would be,
Wonderful love for thee and me.

Refrain

Let every soul from near and from far,
Follow the rays of Bethlehem’s star;
Till it shall shine o’er Calvary’s tree,
Wonderful love for thee and me.

Refrain
