Born is the Light of the World
1. Beautiful child all aglow in the candlelight, See how he sleeps in a poor manger bed. Beautiful child! How the heavens adorn him. Starlight of silver And halo of gold ’round his head. REFRAIN: Gloria! Gloria! Angels on high are singing all, “Gloria!” Let earth in reply sing, “Gloria! Gloria in excelsis deo!” 2. In the dark of the night, Born is the Light of the world. Beautiful child in the arms of his mother. Come see how his radiance shines in her face. Beautiful child who dispels all our darkness. Bright in his glory, Alight with the Father’s own grace. REFRAIN.
