His Birth

7s.

1
Shepherds keeping watch by night,
Saw around a glorious light,
Heard an angel’s voice proclaim,
“Christ is born in Bethlehem”.

2
Soon by many a heavenly tongue,
“Glory be to God,” was sung;
“Peace on earth, good will to men,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.”

3
O how great the Saviour’s love,
Thus to leave His throne above!
All to suffer guilt and shame,
He was “born in Bethlehem.”

4
Christians can with joy give praise
For this condescending grace,
This doth set their hearts in flame,
“Christ is born in Bethlehem.”
