Play your pipe! Beat your drum!
Sing to Christ the Saviour.
Come and worship, come and worship,
worship Christ our king.

Shepherds, come a-dancing, bring your pipe and drum,
come and see the baby, run, run, run!
Play your pipe!...

2 Peaceful in the manger, see him lying there,
gently gather round him, O take care!
Play your pipe!...

3 Listen to the angels, can you hear them sing?
Welcoming the Saviour, he's our king!
Play your pipe!...

4 Come to us, Lord Jesus, come to us again,
in our hearts we'll keep you, there to reign!
Play your pipe!...
