A BED IN MY HEART - Martin Luther
Ah, dearest Jesus, holy Child, Make Thee a bed, soft, undefiled,
Within my heart, that it may be
A quiet chamber kept for Thee.
My heart for very joy doth leap,
My lips no more can silence keep.
I too must sin, with joyful tongue,
That sweetest ancient cradle song,
Glory to God in highest Heaven,
Who unto man HIs SOn hath given,
While angels sing with pious mirth,
A glad New Year to all the earth.
