HE IS BORN, HOLY CHILD DIVIN
Words & Music: Il Est Ne, A Traditional French carol.
He is born, Holy Child divine,
Loud let us sing to greet His coming;
He is born, holy child adored,
Sound the pipes, let the trumpets play.
1. We have waited a thousand years
Since the prophets’ first foretelling;
We have waited a thousand year,
Hail, our new-born Lord this day. Chorus
2. How the light about Him shines!
He is perfect, He is enchanting;
How the light about Him shines,
Sweetly casting fear away. Chorus
3. Starlit is His humble crib,
Ox and ass beside Him sleeping;
Starlit is His humble crib,
See His throne, a bed of hay. Chorus
4. Baby Jesus, new-born Lord,
Bells are ringing, we are singing,
Baby Jesus, new-born Lord,
Live within our hearts, we pray. Chorus
