O COME, LITTLE CHILDREN

Ihr Kinderlein kommet.
Christoph von Schmid, d.1854 / Johann A.P. Schulz, d.1800 (E.C.C.)





O COME, LITTLE CHILDREN


1 O come, little children ; behold, one and all,
Who lies in the manger in Bethlehem's stall ;
For there, little children, on this holiest night,
Our God sends from heaven His Son, your delight.
2 He lies there, before you, asleep in the hay,
With Mary and Joseph to guard Him and pray.
The wondering shepherds look in at the door,
And seeing the Infant they kneel and adore.
3 Adore like the shepherds ! Your glad voices raise
With those of the angels who sing in His praise.
Your chorus will echo from earth to the sky,
With 'Glory to God in His heaven most high.
