The Infant King

The Infant King

Sing Noel at Christmas time,
Let all the bells in heaven chime.
Praise the stem of Jesse's rod--
The newborn King, the Son of God.
The Child thus born as God's own Son
Will ransom all; yes, every one.
The angels sang while shepherds saw
As mild He lay in tufted straw.
The Babe from royal lineage springs.
Christ has come; all heaven sings.
The wise men come the great long way,
Their homage and their gifts to pay.
For lo, this lowly Son of birth
Will rule as King o'er heaven and earth.
