lyrics

D D^7 A A^7 B- D F#-
Gathered ‘round your table on this holy eve
D D^7 A A^7 B- D F#-
Viewing Bethlehem’s stable we rejoice and grieve
E B- D B- D F#-
Joy to see you lying in your manger bed
E B- D E D F#-
Weep to see you dying in our sinful stead

D D^7 A A^7 B- D F#-
Prince of glory gracing heav’n ere time began
D D^7 A A^7 B- D F#-
now for us embracing death as son of man
E B- D B- D F#-
By your birth so lovely by your love so true
E B- D E D F#-
by your cross most holy Lord we worship you

D D^7 A A^7 B- D F#-
Bethlehem’s incarnation, Calvary’s bitter cross
D D^7 A A^7 B- D F#-
wrought for us salvation by your pain and loss
E B- D B- D F#-
now we fall before you in this holy place
E B- D E D F#-
prostrate we adore you for your gift of grace

D D^7 A A^7 B- D F#-
With profoundest wonder we your body take
D D^7 A A^7 B- D F#-
laid in manger yonder broken for our sake
E B- D B- D F#-
Hushed in adoration we approach the cup
E B- D E D F#-
Bethlehem’s pure oblation freely offered up

D D^7 A A^7 B- D F#-
Christmas babe so tender lamb who bore our blame
D D^7 A A^7 B- D F#-
How shall sinners render praises due your name
E B- D B- D F#-
Do your own good pleasure in the lives we bring
E B- D E D F#-
In your ransomed treasure reign forever king
