1 Mary came with meekness, Jesus Christ to bear,
laid the Lord of glory in a manger there.
We come rejoicing, Jesus Christ to love:
baby in a manger king of heaven above!

2 Angels came with praises, Jesus Christ to name,
Heaven's choirs exalting him who bears our shame.
We come rejoicing...

3 Shepherds came with trembling, Jesus Christ to see;
king who, at their bidding, would their shepherd be.
We come rejoicing...

4 Wise men came with treasure, Jesus Christ to bless
he who shares all blessings heaven and earth possess.
We come rejoicing...
