1 Mary, ride on to David's town,
Bethlehem with glory crown;
bear your child to bear our weeping,
rock him waking, rock him sleeping.
Alleluia! Sing this night:
Christ is born, eternal light!

2 Shepherds, come see in David's town,
shepherd of the world come down;
see your saviour, see your healing,
worship humbly, worship kneeling.
Chorus

3 Angels, proclaim to David's town
Jesus Christ of high renown!
Son of Man and king of glory,
here to tell salvation's story.
Chorus
