Give Heed My Heart lyrics:
Give heed, my heart, lift up thine eyes
What is it in that manger lies?
Who is the Child so young and fair?
The blessed Christ Child lieth there.
My heart for very joy doth leap
My lips no more can silence keep
I, too, must sing, with joyful tongue
That sweetest, dearest cradle song.
Glory to God in highest heaven
Who unto man His Son has given
While angels sing, our hearts to cheer
To all the earth a glad new year!
