Holy Jesus in a manger,
Infant Holy little child.
Mary mother watching over,
O’er her baby unbeguiled.

Hush there’s nothing near can hurt you,
She will keep you safe from harm.
Sleep thou dear child born of Mary,
Slumber sweetly in her arms.

Holy Saviour, yet so tiny,
mighty ruler, yet so small.
Infant lowly, born so humbly,
yet Redeemer of us all.

Now the angels sing to greet thee,
God is with us, here on earth.
With the Shepherds and the Wise men,
come to see his holy birth

Holy Jesus in a manger,
Little baby in a stall,
Infant holy, God's Messiah,
born to suffer for us all.

Angels bending o'er the cradle,
God's anointed from on high.
Holy Jesus in a manger,
Infant Holy little child.
