Infant holy, Infant lowly Lyrics

Infant holy, Infant lowly,
for His bed a cattle stall;
Oxen lowing, little knowing,
Christ the Babe is Lord of all.

Swift are winging angels singing,
noels ringing, tidings bringing:
Christ the Babe is Lord of all.

Flocks were sleeping,
shepherds keeping vigil till the morning new
Saw the glory, heard the story,
tidings of a Gospel true.

Thus rejoicing, free from sorrow,
praises voicing, greet the morrow:
Christ the Babe
was born for you.
