Traditional German Christmas carol. Music by Johann Peter Abraham Schulz.

German words:
Ihr Kinderlein, Kommet, O kommet doch all'!
Zur Krippe her kommet in Bethlehem's Stall,
Un seht, was in dieser Hochheiligen Nacht
Der Vater im Himmel fuer Freude uns macht.

O seht in der Krippe im naechtlichen Stall,
Seht heir bei des Lichtleins hellglaenzendem Strahl,
In reinlichen Windeln das himmlische Kind,
Viel schoener und holder, als Engel es sind.

English translation by Christoph v. Schmid
O come, little children, O come, one and all,
O come to the manger in Bethlehem's stall;
And see what our Father on this holy night,
Has sent us from Heaven for our pure delight.

O see, in the cradle, this night in the stall,
O see how the light dazzles even us all;
In pure gleaming white lies this Child, heaven's love,
More beaut'ous and holy than angels above.
