Christmas carols

I enjoyed hearing these on the show last weekend. I especially like Et Barn Er Født I Betlehem, which was actually originally Latin. They sing it in Danish. These are the English words --
A Child is Born in Bethlehem,
in Bethlehem;
And gladness fills Jerusalem,
Allelujah! Allelujah!

A lowly manger shelters him,
This holy boy.
God's angels sing above with joy.
Allelujah! Allelujah!

We now give thanks eternally,
To God, the Holy Trinity,
Allelujah! Allelujah!
