#88: In a Cave

Standard
(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

In a cave, a lowly stable, Christ our Lord wan born;

From the heavens white-robed angels Sang that holy morn.

CHORUS

Noel, noel! Noel, noel! Rang throughout the sky; (starlit sky;)

Noel, noel! Noel, noel! Praise to God on high!

2

Shepherds heard the heav’nly chorus And were lore afraid;

But an angel spoke the tidings That all fears allayed.

CHORUS

3

“Born to you in David’s city Is your Lord and King –”

So an angel to the shepherds Hope and joy did bring.

CHORUS

4

Leaving resting flocks behind them, Sought they for the stall,

Where there lay, in saddling garments, Christ the hope of all.

CHORUS

5

Let us, like the lowly shepherds, See the Lord this night,

That we may, by lives of service, Bring to all true light.

CHORUS
