There ye shall find the Infant laid By whom the heavens and earth were made." 6 Now let us all with gladsome cheer Follow the shepherds and draw near To see this wondrous gift of God, Who hath His only Son bestowed. 7 Give heed, my heart, lift up thine eyes! What is it in yon manger lies? Who is this child, so young and fair? The blessed Christ-child lieth there. 8 Welcome to earth, Thou noble Guest, Through whom the sinful world is blest! Thou com'st to share my misery; What can we render, Lord, to Thee? 9 Ah, Lord, who hast created all, How weak art Thou, how poor and small, That Thou dost choose Thine infant bed Where ox and as but lately fed! 10 Were earth a thousand times as fair, Beset with gold and jewels rare, It yet were far too poor to be A narrow cradle, Lord, for Thee. 11 For velvets soft and silken stuff Thou hast but hay and straw so rough, Whereon Thou, King, so rich and great, As 'twere Thy heav'n, art throned in state. 12 Thus hath it pleased Thee to make plain The truth to sinners poor and vain, That all the world's honor, wealth and might, Are naught and worthless in Thy sight. 13 Ah, dearest Jesus, holy Child, Make Thee a bed, soft, undefiled, Within my heart, that it may be A quiet chamber kept for Thee. 14 My heart for very joy doth leap; My lips no more can silence keep. I, too, must sing with joyful tongue That sweetest ancient cradle-song: 15 Glory to God in highest heav'n, Who unto us His Son hath giv'n! While angels sing with pious mirth A glad new year to all the earth. Topics: Nativity of our Lord Used With Tune: VON HIMMEL HOCH

A maiden, in her lowly place, Became, in ways beyond all thought, The chosen vessel of His grace. 4 And while the angels in the sky Sang praise above the silent field, To shepherds poor the Lord Most High, the one great Shepherd, was revealed. 5 All glory for this blessed morn To God the Father ever be; All praise to You, O Virgin-born, And Holy Ghost eternally.

Author: Johann Franck; Johann Campanus; Cath­er­ine Wink­worth Meter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 9 hymnals Matching Instances: 4 Lyrics: 1. Ye heav’ns, oh haste your dews to shed, Ye clouds, rain gladness on our head, Thou earth, behold the time of grace, And blossom forth in righteousness! 2. O living Sun, with joy break forth, And pierce the gloomy clefts of earth; Behold, the mountains melt away Like wax beneath Thine ardent ray! 3. O Life-dew of the Churches, come, And bid this arid desert bloom! The sorrows of Thy people see, And take our human flesh on Thee. 4. Refresh the parched and drooping mind, The broken limb in mercy bind, Us sinners from our guilt release, And fill us with Thy heavenly peace. 5. O wonder! night no more is night! Comes then at last the longed-for light? Ah yes, Thou shinest, O true Sun, In whom are God and man made one!
