For Christmas

Words and Music: Anonymous. Known by 1926.

1. Lovely Infant, dearest Saviour
Jesus Friend we love Thee best
See we all invite Thee kindly
Come within our hearts to rest
See we all invite Thee kindly
Come within our hearts to rest

2. Linger not in Thy rough stable,
Stay not in the freezing cold;
Our warm hearts are widely opened,
Thee sweet infant to enfold.

Our warm hearts are widely opened,
Thee sweet infant to enfold.
