The Child Of Humble Virgin Born


The Child of humble virgin born
Brings joy to ev’ry heart this morn;
Again we hail the Christ-child dear,
Who ushers in a glad New Year.

The angels in our joy take part
And serve us with a willing heart;
They sing of Christ, the Holy Child,
Who God to man hath reconciled.

If God Himself our race befriend,
Then Satan’s rule o’er us must end.
The gates of hell we may defy,
For with us is the Lord most high.

This is the year of jubilee;
Why should we still despondent be?
Lift up your voices, sing today;
The Christ-child drives all care away.
