LYRICS
'Twas in the moon of win-ter-time
When all the birds had fled,
That might-y Gitch-i Man-i-tou
Sent an-gel choirs in-stead.
Be-fore their light the stars grew dim,
And won-d'ring hunters heard the hymn:

(REFRAIN)
Je-sus, your King, is born,
Je-sus is born,
In ex-cel-sis glo-ri-a.

With-in a lodge of bro-ken bark
The ten-der Babe was found.
A rag-ged robe of rab-bit skin
En-wrapped His beau-ty round.
The chiefs from far be-fore Him knelt
With gifts of fox and bea-ver pelt.

(REFRAIN)

O child-ren of the for-est free,
O sons of Man-i-tou,
The Holy Child of earth and heav'n
Is born to-day for you.
Come kneel be-fore the rad-iant Boy
Who brings you beau-ty, peace and joy.

(REFRAIN)
