1. Meager and quiet, miserable stable,
full of heavenly glory.
Here lies the sleeping little Lord Jesus
in the streaming rays before us.
2. Up above Him angels were hovering,
bent down they are kneeling,
their hair of gold, and wings of white,
beneath the painted rainbow.
3. Joy to the world, over us the Lord
sheds the morning glow.
The abyss is ended, the devil has fallen,
the Lord of lords 's descending.
