A child is born to us this night,
While angels sing on high.
They bring to us the tidings bright,
Hosanas fill the sky.
R.: For born to us is a Saviour King,
The one of whom the prophets sing.
A child is born to us this night,
While sweet hosannas ring.

The Wisdom of the Lord shines down,
Upon the stable poor
And shepherds come to Bethlehem town,
Emmanuel to adore.
R.

Then wise men three come from afar,
The King of kings to behold,
Directed by the heav'nly star
Their wonderful gifts unfold.
R.

To You O Blessed Trinity,
To Godhead One and Three
All praise throughout eternity,
Unending glory be.
R.
