3670. Let Us Now Go to Bethlehem

1. Let us now go to Bethlehem,
To see the wondrous thing—
Mary and Joseph and with them
The babe, our infant king!
For we shall find on earth
The Heav’n of Heav’ns in Him,
The holy, holy, holy Son,
Beneath the cherubim.

2. Let us now go to Bethlehem,
To see the wondrous thing—
Mary and Joseph and with them
The babe, our infant king—
His Father’s glory come
To lift our hearts above.
First loved by Him and angel hosts
We carol back His love.

3. Let us then go to Bethlehem—
Faith’s star shall guide the way
To Jesus cradled in His church,
This bright appearing day!
There, light’s true Light to Thee
We sing with glad accord.
To meet it is to celebrate
Thy birthday, Jesus, Lord!
