In Bethlehem, That Fair City Lyrics
To bliss God bring us all and some,
Christe, Redemptor omnium
1. In Bethlehem, that fair city,
Was born a Child that was so free,
Lord and prince of high degree,
Iam lucis orto sidere.
2. Jesu, for the love of Thee,
Children were slain great plenty
In Bethlehem, that fair city,
A solis ortus cardine.
3. As the sun shineth in the glass,
So Jesus of His mother born was
Him to serve God give us grace,
O lux beata Trinitas.
4. Now is He our Lord Jesus,
Thus hath He verily visited us;
Now to make merry among us,
Exultet celem laudibus.
