5 And our eyes at last shall see Him,

Through His own redeeming love, For that Child so dear and gentle

Is our Lord in heaven above; And He leads His children on To the place where He is gone.

6
Not in that poor lowly stable,

With the oxen standing by,
We shall see Him, but in heaven,

Set at God's right hand on high, When, like stars, His children crowned, All in white, shall wait around. Amen.

Sacred Infant, all divine,
What a tender love was Tbine,
Thus to come from highest bliss
Down to such a world as this!

Teach, O teach us, holy Child,
By Thy face so meek and mild,
Teach us to resemble Thee
In Thy sweet humility!

Hail, thou ever-blessed morn!
Hail, Redemption's happy dawn!
Sing through all Jerusalem,
Christ is born in Bethlehem !

Let us bring our poor oblations

Thanks and love, and faith and praise. Come, ye people, come, ye nations, All in all draw nigh to gaze.

4 Hark! the heaven of heavens is ringing,

Christ the Lord to man is born! Are not all our hearts too singing

Welcome, welcome, Christmas morn ? Still the Child, all power possessing,

Smiles as through the ages past; And the song of Christmas blessing Sweetly sinks to rest at last. Amen.

And the wise men haste from far: Come, glad hearts, and spirits pining,

For you all has risen the Star;
