Born is the light of 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.

**Gloria! Gloria! Angels on high
are singing all, "Gloria!"
Let earth in reply sing "Gloria!
Gloria! In excelsis deo."
In the dark of the night,
Born is the Light of the world.

2. 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.
