O Come, Little Children

Text:  Johann C. von Schmid 
Music:  Unknown 
OHT Incipit:  

O come, little children, come one and come all;
O come to the manger in Bethlehem's stall,
And see what our father in heaven above
Has sent to all people on earth with his love,

O see in the manger so meek and so mild,
O see in the soft light the heavenly Child,
In swaddling clothes folded, his beauty more sweet
Than angels, whose voices his lowly birth greet.

His bed, little children, a manger with hay;
His mother and Joseph in ecstasy pray;
The shepherds in wonder their glad worship bring,
While chorus of angels sweet Glorias sing.
