UNTO US A BOY IS BORN!
[D] Unto us a [A] boy is [D] born!
King of [G] all cre[D]ation,
came He [A] to a [G] world for[D]lorn,
the Lord of [A] every [D] nation,
the [A] Lord of every [D] nation.
Cradled in a stall was He
with sleepy cows and asses;
but the very beasts could see
that He all men surpasses,
that He all men surpasses.
Herod then with fear was filled:
"A Prince," he said, "in Jewry!"
All the little boys he killed
at Bethlehem in his fury,
at Bethlehem in his fury.
Now may Mary's Son, who came
so long ago to love us,
lead us all with hearts aflame
unto the joys above us,
unto the joys above us.
Alpha and Omega He!
Let the organ thunder,
while the choir with peals of glee
doth rend the air asunder,
doth rend the air asunder!
