1. Child Jesus came from heaven to earth,
The Father's mercy showing;
In stable mean He had His birth,
No better cradle knowing;
A star smiled down the Babe to greet,
The humble oxen kissed His feet:
Alleluia, Alleluia, Child Jesus!

2. O soul with sin and grief cast down,
Forget thy bitter sadness!
A Child is come to David's town,
To bring thee joy and gladness!
O let us haste the Child to find,
And childlike be in heart and mind:
Alleluia, Alleluia, Child Jesus!
