Silent and weary, windy and dreary,
Yet full of heavenly glory!
Here in a manger, safe from all danger,
Lies the Child Jesus sleeping.

Round Him the angels, bright as the morning,
On bended knees adore Him.
Down from the hills the shepherds are gathering
With pipes and drums to greet Him.

Mary His mother, pure as a lily,
Close by her husband old Joseph,
Full of amazement, love and contentment,
Smiles on her newborn Son.

All the earth’s people, all the world’s creatures
Sing praises to the Messiah.
Wisdom of Wisdom, Light of the Light,
Jesus is Man, God Incarnate!

Silent, weary, windy, dreary.
