Under Bethlem’s star so bright,

Shepherds watched their flocks by night.

Hydom hydom, tidlidom,

Hydom hydom, tidlidom


Came an angel telling them

They must go to Bethlehem.


‘Hasten, hasten’ they did say,

Jesus Christ you’ll find that way.


Sleeping in a manger bare

Lies the holy child so fair.


Mary rocks him tenderly

Joseph sings a lullaby.
