English Lyrics for 'O Come, Little Children'

O come, little children, O come, one and all,
O come to the manger in Bethlehem's stall;
And see what our Father on this holy night,
Has sent us from Heaven for our pure delight.

O see, in the cradle, this night in the stall,
O see how the light dazzles even us all;
In pure gleaming white lies this Child, heaven's love,
More beaut'ous and holy than angels above.


German Lyrics for 'Ihr Kinderlein kommet'

Ihr Kinderlein, Kommet, O kommet doch all!
Zur Krippe her kommet in Bethlehem's Stall,
Un seht, was in dieser Hochheiligen Nacht
Der Vater im Himmel fuer Freude uns macht.

O seht in der Krippe im naechtlichen Stall,
Seht heir bei des Lichtleins hellglaenzendem Strahl,
In reinlichen Windeln das himmlische Kind,
Viel schoener und holder, als Engel es sind.
