Through Long Ages Of The Past


Refrain:
He is born, the divine Christ Child;
play the oboe and bagpipes merrily!
He is born, the divine Christ Child;
sing we all of the Savior mild.

Through long ages of the past,
prophets have foretold His coming;
through long ages of the past,
now the time has come at last! [Refrain]

O how lovely, O how pure
is this perfect Child of heaven;
O how lovely, O how pure,
gracious gift to humankind! [ Refrain]

Jesus, Lord of all the world,
coming as a Child among us;
Jesus, Lord of all the world,
grant to us Thy heavenly peace. [Refrain]
