1. Child Jesus in a manger lay,
Yet Heaven was His own.
His lowly pillow was of straw,
And round Him no light shone;
But in the sky the star was bright,
And oxen kissed His feet that night,
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

2. O sorrowing soul, be glad today,
Cast our your bitter pain;
For Bethle'm's Babe will show the way
We heavenly bliss can gain.
Let us with childlike heart and mind
Seek now the Son of God to find.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
