On Christmas morn
the Holy Child was born
to save us from our sin.
His maiden mother,
blest as no other,
treasured all within.
Alleluia, alleluia,
quam dulcis est amor.

On Christmas day
we make our way,
our own brief exodus,
to hear the call
from Jesus the Lord of all,
come to be one with us.
Alleluia, alleluia,
pro nobis puer natus est.
