Twas in the moon of wintertime
When all the birds had fled
That God, the Lord of all the earth
Sent angel choirs instead
Before their light the stars grew dim
And wondring hunters heard the hymn

:Jesus your king is born!
Jesus is born!
Glory be to God on high!

The earliest moon of wintertime
Is not so round and fair
As was the ring of glory
Around the infant there
And when the shepherds then drew near
The angel voices rang out clear

Jesus your king is born!
Jesus is born!
Glory be to God on high!

O children of the forest free
The angels song is true
The holy child of earth and heav'n
Is born today for you
Come kneel before the radiant boy
Who brings you beauty peace and joy

Jesus your king is born!
Jesus is born!
Glory be to God on high!
