  1. 1. Said Samuel, "Within five years
    A night will be as day,
    And Baby Jesus will be born
    In a land far, far away."
  2. Hosanna! Hosanna!
    Oh, let us gladly sing.
    How blessed that our Lord was born;
    Let earth receive her King!
  3. 2. Across the sea, in Bethlehem,
    Lord Jesus came to earth
    As Samuel had prophesied,
    And angels sang His birth.
