1. Child Jesus comes from heav'n above
To bless the wintry earth,
Our happy voices blend in song
To hail a Saviour's birth.
Let ev'ry heart its tribute bring,
With grateful joy its praises sing,
Sing praises, Sing praises unto God!
Child Jesus today on earth is born!

2. Full many a gift at Christmas time
Child Jesus doth bestow
But none so precious or so fair
As his dear self we know.
Then grateful let our voices ring,
Praise God with happy caroling,
Sing praises, Sing praises unto God!
Child Jesus today on earth is born!

3. In ev'ry Christian heart and home,
Child Jesus is reborn,
O let us seek like him to grow
On this fair Christmas morn.
By true and loving lives may we
Each strive a Christmas gift to be;
Sing praises, Sing praises unto God!
Child Jesus today on earth is born!
