Infant Holy, Infant Lowly







See also the Polish original: W żłobie leży

Infant holy,
Infant lowly,
for his bed a cattle stall;
oxen lowing,
little knowing,
Christ the Babe is Lord of all.
Swift are winging
angels singing,
noels ringing,
tidings bringing:
Christ the Babe is Lord of all.

Flocks were sleeping,
shepherds keeping
vigil till the morning new
saw the glory,
heard the story,
tidings of a Gospel true.
Thus rejoicing,
free from sorrow,
praises voicing,
greet the morrow:
Christ the Babe was born for you.
