To what degree of humbleness be,
Coming into the world at a stable…

Oh what a way to begin ones stay,
‘Specially one through whom all things are able…

A man he will be, to set all of us free,
From our sins that bind like a cable…

Our homage to pay, on this Christmas day,
Welcome one and all to his table.
