1. Let us now go to Bethlehem,
To see the wondrous thing, --
Mary and Joseph and with them
The Babe, our Infant King!
Bright Stars above shine on,
To light our speedy way,
While Angels sweetly carol in
The Blessed Christmas Day.

2. Let us now go to Bethlehem,
To see the wondrous thing, --
Mary and Joseph and with them
The Babe, our Infant King!
For we shall find on earth
The Heaven and Heavens in Him,
The Holy, Holy, Holy Son,
Beneath [1] the Cherubim.

3. Let us now go to Bethlehem,
To see the wondrous thing, --
Mary and Joseph and with them
The Babe, our Infant King!
His Father's Glory come
To life our hearts above.
First loved by Him and Angel Hosts
We carol back His Love.

4. Let us then go to Bethlehem, --
Faith's Star shall guide the way
To Jesus cradled in His Church,
This bright Appearing Day!
There, Light's true Light to Thee
We sing with glad accord.
For meet it is to celebrate
Thy Birthday, Jesus Lord!

1. "Lower than the Angels awhile." -- Heb. ii. 19. Return
