1. Oh! Lovely Infant dearest Saviour,
Jesus friend we love Thee best;
See we all invite Thee kindly
Oh, come within our hearts to rest.
Oh, come within our hearts to rest,

Chorus:
Gloria, Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria, Gloria in excelsis Deo
And the echo, and the echo
And the echo of our mountains
Return the song, Return the song,
Return the song as loud and clear,
Gloria in excelsis, in excelsis Deo.

2. Linger not in Thy poor stable,
Stay not in the freezing cold;
Our warm hearts are warmly opened
Thee, sweet Infant, Thee to enfold;
Thee, sweet Infant, Thee to enfold. Chorus

3. Oh we know Thee, King of Heaven,
Tho' we see Thee weak and small,
And we say with hearts confiding,
Thou comest here to save us all;
Thou comest here to save us all. Chorus

4. See, I make my heart to offer,
Make it now a crib for Thee,
Come O Jesus, lovely Infant,
Come, enter in and stay with us;
Come, enter in and stay with us. Chorus
