From a wee baby in Mary’s womb
To a Savior risen from the tomb–
He came… to save the lost.
Gethsemane’s anguish pressed its clutch
His Father’s heart, He surely touched–
He paid… the ultimate cost.
Nazareth bore a carpenter’s son
To a wooden cross, His onus done–
He redeemed… all our sins.
Heavenly host descended below
He would be raised up, God’s will to show–
He is… our offering.
Come, Emmanuel, this holy day
Bless our Nativity Feast we pray–
You command… that we must love.
Little holy Child, Our King of Kings
Release Your true love, help us sing–
Oh, sing… in heaven above!
