Hymn/Song Information

There came a little Child to earth




There came a little Child to earth
Long ago;
And the angels of God
proclaimed His birth,
High and low.


Out on the night, so calm and still,
Their song was heard;
For they knew that the Child
on Bethlehemís hill
Was Christ the Lord.


Far away in the goodly land
Fair and bright;
Children with crowns of glory stand,
Robed in white.


in white more pure
than the spotless snow;
and their tongues unite
in the psalm the
angels sang long ago
on that still night.


They sing, the Lord
of Heaven so fair,
A Child was born;
And that they might
His crown of glory share,
Wore crown of thorn.


In mortal weakness, want and pain,
He came to die,
That the children of earth
might in glory reign
With Him on high.


He has put on
his kingly apparel now
in that goodly land;
and he leads to where fountains
of waters flow
that chosen band


And evermore in robes so fair
And undefiled,
Those ransomed children
His praise declare,
Who was a Child.
