From Earthly Tasks Lift Up Thine Eyes Lyrics
1. From earthly tasks lift up thine eyes
Within a crib, in slumber lies
A little Child so young and fair:
'Tis Christ, the Lord, Who resteth there!
2. "Welcome to earth, Thou noble Guest,
Thru Whom the world is ever blest!"
Himself will our salvation be,
Himself will all from sin set free.
3. O dearest Lord, Thou holy Child,
Make Thee a bed, soft, undefiled,
Within my heart, that it may be
A resting place kept quiet for Thee.
4. For very joy my heart doth leap,
My lips no more can silence keep:
"Glory to God in highest heav'n,
Who unto men His Son hath giv'n!"
