1. Child Jesus came to earth this day,
To save us sinners dying;
And cradled in the straw and hay,
The Holy One is lying.
The stars shone down the Child to greet,
The lowing oxen kiss His feet,
2. Take courage, soul so weak and worn,
Thy sorrows have departed;
A Child in David's town i9s born,
To heal the broken hearted.
Then let us haste this Child to find,
And children be in heart and mind. Refrain
