He is born, the divine Christ child;Oboe resound, and the bagpipe merrily!He is born, the divine Christ child—Sing the birth of the Savior mild.

3. In a stable he sweetly rests,With some straw for a humble pillow.In a stable he sweetly rests,Condescension of love divine.

He is born, the divine Christ child;Oboe resound, and the bagpipe merrily!He is born, the divine Christ child—Sing the birth of the Savior mild.

4. Lord, thou art our eternal King,Born on earth to unite and save us.Lord, thou art our eternal King—At thy birth we rejoice and sing!
