By Thy Birth Thou Holiest One Very God




By Thy Birth, Thou Holiest One,
Very God, yet Mary's Son;
Seen in swaddling bands arrayed,
And in Bethlehem's manger laid.

Born for us a little child,
Cleanse and keep us undefiled,
Cleanse and keep us undefiled.



By the Angel words that led
Shepherds to Thy lowly bed,
Teaching us the songs of Heaven,
Unto whom a Son is given.

Born for us a little child,
Cleanse and keep us undefiled,
Cleanse and keep us undefiled.



By Thy duteous reverence still
Subject to Thy parents' will;
Winning, both from God and man,
Favour such as childhood can.

Born for us a little child,
Cleanse and keep us undefiled,
Cleanse and keep us undefiled.



Look upon us, Lord, for we
Ask but to Resemble Thee:
Treading in Thy footsteps here,
Walking in our Father's fear;

Born for us a little child,
Cleanse and keep us undefiled,
Cleanse and keep us undefiled.
