(verse 1)
silently sleeping mary is keeping

her babe in a manger warm and dry

there in the cold night there came a bright light

way from afar up in the sky

a ray of new hope for the human race

new life for the sinners of old
son of god given to man

born to be saviour and king

a gift from god to all mankind

welcome Jesus-welcome jesus

welcome Jesus christmas day
men who had travelled far

following that bright star

with gifts for the gentle Jesus child

shepherds they came to see

told of this birth to be

this glorious king so meek and mild

the whole world will know

of this man of peace

his message of love to all mankind
