Babe of Bethlehem

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder and His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. – Isaiah 9:6

Sweet Babe of Bethlehem
so innocent, so pure
Born to be our Savior
of this we can be sure

From the Root of Jesse
was born the Kings of Kings
A helpless newborn
protected
under angel’s wings

The Word was made flesh
to fulfill God’s perfect plan
He came to live among us
this annointed Son of Man

His birth fulfilled a covenant
guaranteed
so long ago
And though we are unworthy
His tender mercies overflow

Immanuel
firstborn of all creation
The promised Messiah
and Cornerstone of our salvation

Jesus brought His brilliant light
to this darkened earth
The wisdom and the power of God
delivered in Christ’s birth

For unto us a child was born
our perfect Prince of Peace
Sent to save the world
His love for us will never cease

Oh sweet babe of Bethlehem
so innocent, so pure
Born to be our Savior
of this we can be sure
