Lyrics: Gentle Jesus, Holy Child, <br/>Born this night, in the dark and wild, <br/>Come to save poor sinners here, <br/>With thy saving grace, draw near. <br/> <br/>Angels sang to shepherds there, <br/>Easing nights of pain and care. <br/>Let us all haste to thy side. <br/>In thy presence let us bide. <br/> <br/>Bearing gifts, came wise men three. <br/>Gold and myrrh, they offered thee. <br/>We, too, strive to do our part: <br/>Willing hands and contrite heart. <br/> <br/>Gentle Jesus, Holy Child, <br/>Born this night to the dark and wild, <br/>Come to save poor sinners here, <br/>With thy saving grace, draw near. <br/>
