Ah little Jesus dear to my heart!

Comfort ye my people
Ev’ry valley shall be exalted
Behold, a virgin shall conceive
O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion
For unto us a child is born
Rejoice greatly
Then shall the eyes of the blind be opened
He shall feed his flock like a shepherd (with Come unto Him)
Thou art gone up on high
