He is born the Heav'nly Child - www.SongsGuitar.com

‘Tis four thousand years and more,
Prophets have foretold His coming,
‘Tis four thousand years and more,
Have we waited this happy hour.
He is born, the Heav’nly Child,
Oboes play; set bagpipes sounding
He is born, the Heav’nly Child.
Let all sing His nativity.

Ah, how lovely, Ah, how fair,
What perfection is His graces,
Ah, how lovely, Ah, how fair.
Child divine, so gentle there.
He is born, the Heav’nly Child,
Oboes play; set bagpipes sounding
He is born, the Heav’nly Child.
Let all sing His nativity.

In a stable lodged is He,
Straw is all He has for cradle.
In a stable lodged is He,
Oh how great humility! Chorus
He is born, the Heav’nly Child,
Oboes play; set bagpipes sounding
He is born, the Heav’nly Child.
Let all sing His nativity.

Jesus Lord, O King with power,
Though a little babe You come here,
Jesus Lord, O King with power,
Rule o’er us from this glad hour.
He is born, the Heav’nly Child,
Oboes play; set bagpipes sounding
He is born, the Heav’nly Child.
Let all sing His nativity.
