In a lowly manger sleeping calm and still the Baby see,
’tis the Holy Child of promise, Light of all the world is he.
Holy angels sing his welcome in the realms of glory bright, (Gloria…)
while the morning stars around him shine with soft and tender light. (…in excelsis Deo!)
Blessed Savior, dear Redeemer, Son of David, Prince of Peace,
Rock of Ages, Hope of Nations, Lord, your reign will never cease.
In a lowly manger sleeping—Blessed Savior, Prince of Peace.
