Born a pauper in a manger
so strange a life from cradle to cross
Welcomed by beasts, flanked by marauders
what a gentle life of Jesus!

The star rays cleave the dark
welcoming such a great visitor
revealing the angelic jubilation
what a divine life of Emmanuel!

Counter- current-not the divine ordained
the power of the sword made it not
a refugee in the Black land became
what a bloody scene of the Holy Innocents!

Far from men, lived among men
Fell no victim though tempted like men
Divinity in the service of men
what a humble life of Prince of Peace!

Welcome to the world, O innocent sleeper
Dispel the darkness of the mind, O Divine light
Penetrate and soften the hardened hearts
O wonderful counselor of Bethlehem birth.
