The blessed story of the Christ,
The Babe of Bethlehem,
Is worthy of our song and praise,
And stirs the hearts of men.

The incarnation of this Child,
Who came from realms above,
Is miracle divinely wrought,
And fills our hearts with love.

This lowly Child of Bethlehem
Is by the world adored.
The mortal tongue and heart rejoice,
And call Him Prince and Lord.

The fullness of God's love divine,
Surrounds the Christ so mild;
Alas! how many only know
The Saviour as a child.

Our saving hope is all in vain,
If here our love should cease,
For in the Man of Galilee,
We find the gift of peace.

Somehow the Man of Nazareth
Constrains our heart and soul
To cherish and respect His name;
'Tis He that makes men whole.
