1. In a manger lies the Child,
Lord of heavín and earth,
Hark! the sweet angelic choir
Now proclaim His birth.

Ring the joyful Christmas bells,
And loud anthems sing;
With the angels in the sky
Welcome Christ the King.

2. He from highest heaven above,
Heath come down below;
Peace on earth, goodwill to men,
And Godís love to show. Chorus.

3. To the shepherds in the fields
Was His birth made known;
And with wondering looks they kneel
At the manger throne. Chorus

4. Let us then the angels join
In their Christmas strain;
And with thankfulness and joy
Tell His love again. Chorus
