From a tiny baby in Mary’s womb
To a Savior risen from the tomb--
to save the lost.
In Gethsemane’s night He agonized much
His Father’s heart, He surely touched--
the ultimate cost.
From Nazareth town a carpenter’s son
To a wooden cross, His onus done--
our every sin.
From heaven down to earth below
He would be lifted up to show--
Come, Emmanuel, this holy day
Bless our Nativity Feast we pray--
us to love.
Little Child, Our King of Kings
Let Your true love help us sing--
in heaven above!
(O holy Child of Bethlehem, descend to us, we pray;
Cast out our sin and enter in, be born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels the great glad tidings tell;
O come to us, abide with us, Our Lord Emmanuel.)
~Phillips Brooks, 1868
