1. O come, little children, O come, one and all! O come to the cradle in Bethlehem’s stall! Come, see what has happened this holiest night; Come gaze on the gift from the Father of Might.

2. How sweetly He lies in His bed made of straw, As Mary and Joseph behold Him in awe! The shepherds are kneeling before His poor bed, While caroling angels are heard overhead.

3. O come, join the shepherds, and on bended knee Give thanks to the Father for Jesus, our King. O lift up your voices and join in the praise, That angels from heav’n to the Father now raise.

German:

1. Ihr Kinderlein, kommet, O kommet doch all, Zur Krippe her kommet in Bethlehem’s Stall Und seht, was in dieser hochheiligen Nacht Der Vater in Himmel für Freude uns macht.

2. Da liegt es, ihr Kinder, auf Heu und auf Stroh, Maria und Joseph betrachten es froh, Der edlichen Hirten knie’n betend davor, Hoch oben schwebt jubelnd der Engelein Chor.

3. O beugt, wie die Hirten, anbetend die Knie, Erhebet die Händlein und danket wie sie! Stimmt freudig, ihr Kinder, wer sollt’ ich nicht freu’n? Stimmt freudig zum Jubel der Engel mit ein.
