Et barn er født i Betlehem

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Et barn er født i Betlehem
Betlehem thi glæde sig Jerusalem!
Halleluja,Hallejula

En fattig jomfru sad i løn,
og fødte himlens kongesøn.

Han lagdes i et krybberum,
Guds engle sang med fryd derom.

Og østen vise ofred dér,
guld røgelse og myrra skær.

Forvunden er nu al vor nød,
os er idag en fresler fød.

Guds kære børn vi blev på ny,
skal holde jul i himmelby.

På stjernetæpper lyseblå,
skal glade vi til kirke gå.

Guds engle dér os lære brat,
at synge, som de sang i nat.

Da vorde engle vi som de,
Guds milde ansigt skal vi se.

Ham være pris til evig tid
for frelser bold og broder blid!
