Give Heed My Heart

The words and lyrics of the Christmas Carol 'Give Heed, My Heart' are written by the great Martin Luther (1483-1546) and can be found in "The Hymns of Martin Luther". Martin Luther expressed radical views which began the reformation movement. His followers protested at the treatment given to Martin Luther, the event from which the term 'Protestant' was derived.

Give Heed My Heart
Christmas Carol Lyrics

A Give heed, my heart, lift up thine eyes!
What is it in that manger lies?
Who is the Child so young and fair?
The blessŤd Christ Child lieth there.

My heart for very joy doth leap,
My lips no more can silence keep;
I, too, must sing, with joyful tongue,
That sweetest, dearest cradle song.

Glory to God in highest heavín,
Who unto man His Son has givín,
While angels sing, our hearts to cheer,
To all the earth a glad new year!

Give Heed My Heart
Christmas Carol Lyrics

The German lyrics were translated to English by Catherine Winkworth in Lyra Germanica in 1855. A beautiful arrangement of the music was arranged by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Bach was born on March 21st 1685 in Eisenach, Germany and died on July 28th 1750.
