A child is born in Bethlehem [nur Text]

A child is born in bethlehem


A Child is born in Bethlehem,
in Bethlehem.
And gladness fills Jerusalem,
Allelujah, allelujah!

A lowly manger shelters Him,
This Holy Boy.
God's angels sing above with joy,
Allelujah, allelujah!

We now give thanks eternally,
to God, the Holy Trinity,
Allelujah, allelujah!



Von Nicolai F.L. Grundtvig, 1783-1872
