Love Came Down at Christmas Lyrics

Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, love divine;
Love was born at Christmas,
Stars and angels gave the sign.

Refrain:
Sing Nowell, Sing Nowell, Sing Nowell.

Worship we the Godhead,
Love incarnate, love divine;
Worship we our Jesus:
But wherewith for sacred sign?

Refrain

Love shall be our token,
Love be yours and love be mine,
Love to God and all men,
Love for plea and gift and sign.
