Fling out, fling out your windows wide I bring you joy this Christmas-tide : To-day is born in Bethlehem A son of royal David's stem : Then sing and rest you satisfied -- In excelsis gloria ! "Where is the royal Babe arrayed?" Lo ! He is in a manger laid ; The Lord of life an ox's guest -- But warm He lies on Mary's breast Then sing and rest you undismayed.
