1. Said Samuel, "Within five years
A night will be as day,
And Baby Jesus will be born
In a land far, far away."

Hosanna! Hosanna!
Oh, let us gladly sing.
How blessed that our Lord was born;
Let earth receive her King!

2. Across the sea, in Bethlehem,
Lord Jesus came to earth
As Samuel had prophesied,
And angels sang His birth.
