When Caesar, king of high degree, Did move the world with one decree, There came One greater far than he: The LORD of all.
In David’s town no place to stay, Except where cattle feed on hay; Yet there is born a King today: The Savior child!
Proud Caesar’s troops spread death and fear; Poor Jesus came to dry the tear, Forgive, and bid us all draw near — To give us life.
When Caesar spoke, it moved the earth, But when poor Jesus came to birth The heavens opened up in mirth: Hallelujah!
So let us also rise to bring Our praise to heav’n’s Almighty King, And with the angel chorus sing: Hallelujah!
