When Christ Was Born In Bethlehems Lowly

When Christ was born in Bethl’hem’s lowly manger,
When angel hosts brought tidings from on high,
The shepherds gazed in fear and awesome wonder,
While songs of joy were wafted from the sky.

Go tell the news, the blessed gospel news,
A Saviour lives, a King is born,
Go tell the news the blessed gospel news,
O praise His name, a King is born.

The heavens rang with tidings of great wonder,
A King is born, a gift to fallen man,
Go search for Him, you’ll find him in a manger,
Go tell the world of God’s salvation plan.

Then shepherds came and bowed in humble worship,
While angel hosts were hov’ring very near,
The world slept on – but in a lowly stable,
Hope overcame and love cast out all fear.
