God hath sent His Son this day,

Jesus Christ, our Savior,

Sleeping mildly on the hay

And crowned with loving favor,

And crowned with loving favor.

Born to banish death’s dark night,

For our sins atoning.

Fears and shadows take their flight

This holy Christmas morning,

This holy Christmas morning.

Born to banish death’s dark night,

For our sins atoning.

Fears and shadows take their flight

This holy Christmas morning,

This holy Christmas morning.
