"The Infant Jesus" is a Christmas song written by Pietro Yon and translated by Frederick H. Martens. It is also known by its Latin version, "Gesu Bambino". The melody and lyrics of the chorus are derived from that of "O Come All Ye Faithful".

Lyrics

When blossoms flowered amid the snows
Upon a winter night
Was born the child the Christmas rose
The King of love and light
The angels sang the shepherds sang
The grateful Earth rejoiced
And at His blessed birth the stars
Their exultation voiced
[Chorus]
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord
Again the heart with rapture glows
To greet the holy night
That gave the world its Christmas rose
Its King of love and light
Let every voice acclaim His name
The grateful chorus swell
From paradise to Earth He came
That we with Him might dwell
[Chorus]
