Unto us a Boy is born
King of all creation
Came He to world forlorn
Lord of every nation.

Cradled in a stall was He
'Midst the cows and asses
But the very beasts could see
He all men surpasses.

Herod then with fear was filled
"A prince," he said, "in Jewry!"
All the little boys he killed
At Bethl'em in his fury.

Now may Mary's Son, Who came
Long ago to love us
Lead us all with hearts aflame
To the joys above us.

Omega and Alpha He!
Let the organ thunder
While the choir with peals of glee
Rends the air asunder.

The Gospel song, "Unto Us A Boy Is Born" is based on a 14th century Latin hymn, translated to English by Percy Dearmer.
