Sweet Jesus, Son of Mary,
The Christ Child, Son of God
The prophets have foretold Thee,
The heav'ns shout Thy name.

Jesus in a manger, rest Thy holy head.
One day Thou shalt redeem us, but for now please sleep,
while for joy we weep, for our Savior is born.

Dear Jesus, Son of David,
Our Lord Emmanuel,
From Thee men seek salvation
From the dawn of creation

Kind Jesus, The Messiah,
Jehovah, King, The Word,
Bring peace, justice and mercy,
Dear God how we need Thee!
