Refrain:
Come, come, come to the manger,
Children, come, to the children’s King;
Sing, sing, chorus of angels,
Stars of morning, o’er Bethlehem sing!

1 He lies ’mid the beasts of the stall,
Who is Maker and Lord of us all,
The wintry wind blows cold and dreary,
See, He weeps, the world is weary;
Lord, have pity and mercy on me! [Refrain]

2 He leaves all His glory behind,
To be born and to die for mankind;
With grateful beasts His cradle chooses,
Thankless man His love refuses;
Lord, have pity and mercy on me! [Refrain]

3 To the manger of Bethlehem come,
To the Savior Emmanuel’s home;
The heav’nly hosts above are singing,
Set the Christmas bells a-ringing,
Lord, have pity and mercy on me! [Refrain]
