Christmas Carol Lyrics
Hymn No.162

First Line: The soul wherein God dwells

The soul wherein God dwells
What church could holier be?
Becomes a walking tent
Of heavenly majesty.

Though Christ a thousand times
In Bethlehem be born,
If He’s not born in thee,
Thy soul is still forlorn.

O would thy heart but be
A manger for His birth,
God would once more become
A Child upon this earth.
