Hymn/Song Information

O Jesus Christ Thy manger is




O Jesus Christ, Thy manger is
My paradise at which my soul reclineth.
For there, O Lord, doth lie the Word
Made flesh for us;
herein Thy grace forthshineth.


He Whom the sea and wind obey
Doth come to serve the sinner
in great meekness.
Thou, God’s own Son, with us art one,
Dost join us and
our children in our weakness.


Thy light and grace our guilt efface,
Thy heavenly riches
all our loss retrieving.
Immanuel, Thy birth doth quell
The power of hell and
Satan’s bold deceiving.


Thou Christian heart,
whoe’er thou art,
Be of good cheer
and let no sorrow move thee!
For God’s own Child, in mercy mild,
Joins thee to Him—
how greatly God must love thee!


Remember thou what glory now
The Lord prepared thee
for all earthly sadness.
The angel host can never boast
Of greater glory,
greater bliss or gladness.


The world may hold
her wealth and gold;
But thou, my heart,
keep Christ as thy true Treasure.
To Him hold fast until at last
A crown be thine
and honor in full measure.
