kommet, Christoph von Schmid (1768-1854), 1840
Translation: Melanie Schute
1. O come, little children, come one and
O come to the manger in Bethlehem's stall,
And see what our Father in heaven above,
Has sent to us all on this earth with his love.
2. O see in the manger so meek and so mild,
O see in the soft light the heavenly Child,
In swaddling clothes folded, his beauty more sweet
Than angels, whose voices his lowly birth greet.
3. His bed, little children, a manger with
His mother and Joseph in ecstasy pray,
The Shepherds in wonder their glad worship bring,
While chorus of angels sweet Glorias sing.
