This blessed night we seek Your throne
In awe and wonder at that birth:
The Child of Bethlehem who brought
God�s grace and love back down to earth.
Joseph and Mary, chosen ones,
As parents to Your only Son,
In faith they trudg�d those weary miles
In order that Your will be done.
Then shepherds, high in fields above
The manger in a lowly shed,
Heard angel messengers sing out
Their �Peace on Earth, good will to men.�
Wrapped round in cloths they found the Babe
Lying at rest upon the hay.
It was for us this Child was born
And brought to us God�s bright new day.
Eternal hope for all mankind!
The price of sin You chose to pay!
O Babe of Heaven, we sing Your praise
And at Your feet our hearts we lay!
O grant us now, dear Lord, we pray,
That we might serve You as we ought.
Teach us to yield our wills to Yours
And live in peace as we�ve been taught.
