Hush, oh hush, and hear them cry,
as they gaze with wonder at the sky;
Behold! A marvel has come this day –
there is the light to show us the way!
Oh angels of might, with your voices pure,
your hearts aglow, your joy so sure:
He is here, He is here, oh come and see!
He is here, He is here, to set us all free.
Hush, oh hush, approach with delight,
as we make our way through the darkness of night;
Their smiling faces, their hearts filled with love,
we see as we enter the sight from above.
Oh Mary so gentle, oh Joseph so strong,
we greet you for this we have waited so long:
He is here, He is here, oh see his sweet face!
He is here, He is here, in this poor joy-filled place.
Hush, oh hush, and see His bright eyes,
He gazes with peace, this tiny God-child;
This is the Saviour, so fragile and small,
born in a stable for one and for all.
Oh baby from Heaven, for humanity,
you came down to save us by Your death on a tree.
He is here, He is here, oh hold His sweet hand!
He is here, He is here, before Him we stand.
Hush, oh hush, and see His great light,
shining in hay on this deeply dark night;
This is the One who will grow into man,
and die on the cross in a faraway land.
But for now let me sing you a soft lullaby:
‘lullay lullay, lully, lully’.
He is here, He is here, He is smiling at me!
He is here, He is here, oh do come and see!
Hush, oh hush, as you worship today,
and remember that scene from that time faraway;
And remember that baby is Who we adore,
turn from the darkness of sin, He implores!
Oh modern-day people, He is the Son,
nothing can save us – only He is the One!
He is here, He is here, He is looking at you!
He is here, He is here, what will you do?
Hush, oh hush, He is here, He is here.
Hush, oh hush, there is nothing to fear.
Hush, oh hush and hold Him dear.
Welcome the Christ…
