2. In Bethlehem, in Jewry, 
This blessed Babe was born, 
And laid within a manger, 
Upon this blessed Morn; 
The which His Mother Mary, 
Did nothing take in scorn. 

O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy, 
O tidings of comfort and joy. 

3. From God our Heavenly Father, 
A blessed Angel came; 

And unto certain Shepherds, 
Brought tidings of the same: 
How that in Bethlehem was born 
The Son of God by Name. 

4. 'Fear not then,' said the Angel, 
'Let nothing you affright, 
This day is born a Saviour 

Of a poor Virgin bright, 

To free all those who trust in Him 

From Satan's power and might.' 



5. The shepherds at those tidings, 
Rejoiced much in mind, 

And left their flocks a-feeding, 
In tempest, storm and wind: 
And went to Bethlehem straightway 
TheSonofGodtofind. 

6. And when they came to Bethlehem, 
Where our dear Saviour lay, 

They found Him in a manger, 
Where oxen feed on hay; 
His Mother Mary kneeling down, 
Unto the Lord did pray. 

7. Now to the Lord sing praises, 
All you within this place, 

And with true love and brotherhood 
Each other now embrace; 
This holy tide of Christmas 
All other doth deface.
