Refrain:
Let our eyes open. Let us find Jesus.

Verses:
1. Wake softly newborn Lord. Wake softly Mary's child.
Royal kings are here waiting, weary from their ride.

2. Smile gently newborn Lord. Smile gently Prince of peace.
Royal kings are here kneeling: Strangers from the east.

3. Bless kindly newborn Lord. Bless kindly Lord of light.
Royal kings, their gifts bearing, Bright with joy and new sight.

4. Grant your love newborn Lord. Grant your love O Day-spring.
Royal kings, their praise singing, for the Grace that you bring.
