Song Of The Crib
(15th century German)

Joseph dearest, Joseph mine,
Help me cradle the child divine;
God reward thee and all that's thine
In Paradise
So prays the mother Mary

chorus
He came among us at Christmas tide.
At Christmas tide,
In Bethlehem;
Men shall bring him from far and wide
Love's diadem:
Jesus, Jesus,
Lo, he comes, and loves, and saves, and frees us!

Gladly, dear one, lady mine,
Help I cradle this child of thine;
God's own light on us both shall shine
In Paradise,
As prays the mother Mary.

chorus
He came among us at Christmas tide.
At Christmas tide,
In Bethlehem;
Men shall bring him from far and wide
Love's diadem:
Jesus, Jesus,
Lo, he comes, and loves, and saves, and frees us!

Servant (1)
Peace to all that have goodwill!
God, who heaven and earth doth fill,
Comes to turn us away from ill,
And lies so still
Within the crib of Mary.

Servant (2)
All shall come and bow the knee;
Wise and happy souls shall be,
Loving such divinity,
As all may see
In Jesus, son of Mary.

Servant (3)
Now is born Emmanuel,
Prophisied once by Ezkiel,
Promised Mary by Gabriel -
Ah! who can tell
The praises, Son of Mary.

Servant (4)
Thou my lazy heart hast stirred,
Thou, the Father's eternal Word,
Greater than aught that ear hath heard,
Thou tiny bird
Of love, thou Son of Mary.
