Child of Bethlehem

Precious child of Bethlehem,
Heaven’s little Paschal lamb,
Son of Father Abraham,
And heir to David’s throne,

Nursing at sweet Mary’s breast,
In poor swaddling clothes well-dressed,
All God’s glory manifest
In this wee child alone.

Holy angels softly sing
To the barefoot Hebrew king;
Wide-eyed shepherds wonder bring
And kneel at manger throne.
