Ihr Kinderlein Kommet

This beautiful Christmas carol in German was written in 1798 by Christoph von Schmid. It tells the little children to come to Bethlehem and see the little child that has been born and what is happening in this miraculous Nativity!

I've added a verse in English that is very close to the meaning of the German lyrics.

 

Ihr Kinderlein, kommet,
O kommet doch all!
Zur Krippe her kommet
In Bethlehems Stall.
Und seht was in dieser
Hochheiligen Nacht
Der Vater im Himmel
Fur Freude uns macht

Da liegt es, ihr Kinder,
Auf Heu und auf Stroh,
Maria und Josef
Betrachten es froh;
Die redlichen Hirten
Knien betend davor,
Hoch oben schwebt jubelnd
Der Engelein Chor

Oh Come, Little Children
Oh Come one and All
And see what has happened
In a Bethlehem Stall
And see what has happened
this holiest of nights
Oh see what's come down
From the Father of Lights

Ihr Kinderlein, kommet,
O kommet doch all!
Zur Krippe her kommet
In Bethlehems Stall.
Und seht was in dieser
Hochheiligen Nacht
Der Vater im Himmel
Fur Freude uns macht
