Child in the manger
Infant of Mary
Outcast and stranger
Lord of all
Child who inherits
All our transgressions
All our demerits
On Him fall

Once the most holy
Child of salvation
Gently and lowly
Lived below
Now as our glorious
Mighty Redeemer
See Him victorious
O’er each foe

Prophets foretold Him
Infant of wonder
Angels behold Him
On His throne
Worthy our Savior
Of all our praises
Happy forever
Are His own
