Good people all, this Christmas-time
Consider well and bear in mind
What our good God for us has done
In sending His beloved Son

With thankful heart we should pray
To God with love this Christmas day
In Bethlehem upon that morn
There was a blessed Messiah born!

The night before that happy tide
The noble virgin and her guide
Were long time seeking up and down
To find a lodging in the town

But mark how all things came to pass;
From every door repelled, alas!
As long foretold, their refuge all
Was but an humble oxens' stall

There were three wise men from afar
Directed by a glorious star
And on they wandered night and day
Until they came where Jesus lay

And when they came unto that place
Where our beloved Messiah was
They humbly cast them at His feet
With gifts of gold and incense sweet

Near Bethlehem did shepherds keep
Their flocks of lambs and feeding sheep;
To whom God's angels did appear
Which put the shepherds in great fear

"Prepare and go", the angels said
"To Bethlehem, be not afraid:
For there you'll find, this happy morn
A princely babe, sweet Jesus born"

With happy heart and joyful mind
The shepherds went the babe to find
And as God's angel had foretold
They did our Saviour Christ behold

Within a manger He was laid
And by His side the virgin maid
Attending on the Lord of life
Who came on earth to end all strife
