(Tune: While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks #95 -- CM)

Come, brothers, and my sisters, come, Your grateful tribute bring.

†††††† Behold, in Bethlehem is born Our Savior and our King!

 

 

The crowded inn, like our proud hearts, For other guests had room,

†††††† But none was found for Mary and (Our God) her firstborn son.

 

 

In poverty and weakness He A mortal man was born;

†††††† But never did He cease to be God, the eternal Son!

 

 

A body was prepared for Him, (He took our flesh and blood!)

†††††† That He might be for us made sin And bear the wrath of God!

 

 

His name is Jesus, (Blessed name!), The name we now adore!

†††††† Since Jesus bore our sins away, Godís wrath we bear no more!
