MUSIC: Traditional Polish melody

INFANT HOLY, INFANT LOWLY

VERSE 1:
G                   D
Infant holy, Infant lowly,
        C2            G
For His bed- a cattle stall;
                    D
Oxen lowing, little knowing 
            C2               G
Christ, the Babe, is Lord of all.
          C              D
Swift are winging angels singing,
      Em               D
Noels ringing, tidings bringing:
           C2               Em
Chist, the Babe, is Lord of all!
            C2               G
Christ, the Babe, is Lord of all!

VERSE 2:
Flocks were sleeping; shepherds keeping
Vigil till the morning new
Saw the glory, heard the story-
Tidings of a gospel true.
Thus rejoicing, free from sorrow,
Praises voicing greet the morrow:
Christ, the Babe, was born for you!
Christ, the Babe, was born for you!
