Musical offering for the eleventh day of Christmas

When Christ was born of maid Mary
In Bethlehem that fair city,
Angels sung e’er with mirth and glee,
Alleluia!

Some shepherds saw those angels bright
To them appeared with glorious light,
And said, “God’s son is born tonight!” 

Alleluia! 

This king is come to save His kind
In holy Scripture as we find;
Therefore this song we have in mind,

Alleluia! 

Then dearest Lord, for Thy great grace,
Grant us the bliss to see Thy face,
Where we may sing with all the human race,
Alleluia!
