Sing We Now of Christmas

 

 

Shepherd’s Cradle Song

Sing we now of Christmas,
Noel, sing we here!
Hear our grateful praises
to the babe so dear.
Sing we Noel,
the King is born, Noel!
Sing we now of Christmas,
sing we now Noel!

Angels called to shepherds,
„Leave your flocks at rest,
journey forth to Bethlehem,
find the lambkin blest.“
Sing we Noel,
the King is born, Noel!
Sing we now of Christmas,
sing we now Noel!

In Bethlehem they found him;
Joseph and Mary mild,
seated by the manger,
watching the holy child.
Sing we Noel,
the King is born, Noel!
Sing we now of Christmas,
sing we now Noel!

From the eastern country
came the kings afar,
bearing gifts to Bethlehem
guided by a star.
Sing we Noel,
the King is born, Noel!
Sing we now of Christmas,
sing we now Noel!

Gold and myrrh they took there,
gifts of greatest price;
there was ne’er a place on earth
so like paradise.
Sing we Noel,
the King is born, Noel!
Sing we now of Christmas
,sing we now Noel!
