W: W:2. Hark! a voice from yonder manger, W:Soft and sweet, doth entreat, "Flee from woe and danger; W:Brethren, come; from all that grieves you W:You are freed; all you need I will surely give you." W: W:3. Come, then, let us hasten yonder; W:Here let all, great and small, kneel in awe and wonder, W:Love Him Who with love is yearning; W:Hail the star that from far bright with hope is burning.
