1. As each happy Christmas
Dawns on Earth again
Comes the Holy Christ child
To the hearts of men

2. Enters with His blessing
Into ev'ry home
Guides and guards our footsteps
As we go and come

3. All unknown beside me
He will ever stand
And will safely lead me
With His own right hand

Sheet Music from O. Hardwig, ed., The Wartburg Hymnal (Chicago: Wartburg Publishing House, 1918), #131
