Lyrics: Gentle Jesus, Holy Child,
Born this night, in the dark and wild,
Come to save poor sinners here,
With thy saving grace, draw near.

Angels sang to shepherds there,
Easing nights of pain and care.
Let us all haste to thy side.
In thy presence let us bide.

Bearing gifts, came wise men three.
Gold and myrrh, they offered thee.
We, too, strive to do our part:
Willing hands and contrite heart.

Gentle Jesus, Holy Child,
Born this night to the dark and wild,
Come to save poor sinners here,
With thy saving grace, draw near.
