11820. Now We Bring Our Christmas Treasures

1 Now we bring our Christmas treasures,
Loving thoughts and deeds we bring;
Childlike hearts we gladly offer
To the Child, the children’s king.
To the Child, who in the manger,
Lay upon that Christmas morn,
When the angels came to tell us
That the children’s king was born.

2 And He lives throughout the ages,
Lives and reigns in earth and sky;
Angel hosts still sing the glory
Of the children’s king on high.
Yet He cares for children’s praises:
So, with heart and voice we ring;
Glory in the highest, glory,
To the Child, the children’s king.
