159. Sing We Now of Christmas

1 Sing we now of Christmas, Noel, sing we here!
Hear our grateful praises to the babe so dear.

[Refrain:]
Sing we Noel, the King is born, Noel!
Sing we now of Christmas, sing we now Noel!

2 Angels called to shepherds, "Leave your flocks at rest,
journey forth to Bethlehem, find the lambkin blest." (Refrain)

3 In Bethlehem they found him; Joseph and Mary mild,
seated by the manger, watching the holy child. (Refrain)

4 From the eastern country came the kings afar,
bearing gifts to Bethlehem guided by a star. (Refrain)

5 Gold and myrrh they took there, gifts of greatest price;
there was ne'er a place on earth so like paradise. (Refrain)
