1. Jesus Holy, born so lowly,
We will sing your carols gay.
Jesus dearest, precious Infant,
Come to us from Heav'n today.

Shepherds, join the joyful chorus,
Heavenly love is reining o'er us,
Here appearing as a Babe.
Shepherds, join the joyful chorus,
Heavenly love is reining o'er us,
Here appearing as a Babe.

2. On the straw the Babe is sleeping,
In the humble manger bed.
May loving watch is keeping
Angels hover 'round His head.

Shepherds bow in adoration,
Praising God's sweet benediction
That upon the earth is shed.
Shepherds bow in adoration,
Praising God's sweet benediction
That upon the earth is shed.
