Original text and translations

My joy, my love, my darling thou!
My treasure new, my rapture thou!
My comely, beauteous babe-son thou,
unworthy I to tend to thee. Alleluia.

While sun of hope and light art thou!
Of love the heart and eye art thou!
Though but a tender babe,
I bow in heavenly rapture unto thee. Alleluia.

And though thou art the King of all
they sent thee to the manger stall
where at thy feet they all shall fall
and sing their praises unto thee. Alleluia.
