"O Come, Little Children" is a Christmas song written by Christoph von Schmidt and J. A. P. Schulz.


O come little children O come one and all
To Bethlehem's haste the manger so small
God's son for a gift has been sent you this night
To be your redeemer your joy and delight
The hay is His pillow the manger His bed
The beasts staind in wonder to gaze on His head
Yet there where He lieth so weak and so poor
Come shepherds and wise men to kneel at His door
He's born in a stable for you and for me
Draw near by the bright gleaming starlight to see
In swaddling clothes lying so meek and so mild
And purer than angels the heavenly child
See Mary and Joseph with love beaming eyes
Are gazing upon the rude bed where He lies
The shepherds are kneeling with hearts of love
While angels sing loud hallelujahs above
Kneel down and adore Him with shepherds today
Lift up little hands now and praise Him as they
Rejoice that a Savior from sin you can boast
And join in the song of the heavenly host
Now Glory to God sing the angels on high
And peace upon Earth heavwnly voices reply
Then come little children and join in the day
That gladdened the world on that first Christmas Day
