O come little children, I pray ye come all,
And join with the shepherds at Bethlehem's stall;
There see what the Father, to do us delight,
Hath sent to the earth on this glorious night.
O bow, little children, O bend low and pray,
With little hands folded thank God, as did they;
Sing lustily, children, with glad tuneful voice,
O sing with the angels, and like them rejoice!
