Jesus, holy Son of God lying in a manger full of hay,
Come down from the realms of heaven.
God has come this blessed day.
On this sacred night you rest in your mother’s arms,
Sleeping majesty from heaven, while the angels sing.
Jesus, Savior born on earth to dwell. Thou Holy Son of Heav’nly Father
Come to heal Thy sons and daughters, come with healing in Thy wings.
Jesus, Savior, how I long to feel Thy sweet embrace,
How I long to be in Thy presence in a coming day.
How I long to regain Thy presence in a coming day.
How I long to kneel before Thee in a coming day.
