He is Born, The Holy Child is a song from A Very Veggie Christmas where the French Peas sang about Jesus Christ's birth.

Lyrics

Philippe: Are you ready, Jean-Claude?

Jean-Claude: I am ready; are you, Philippe?

Philippe: Oh-ho, you know I am!

Jean-Claude: Oh-ho! You were born ready, no?

Christoffe: Here it goes!

All: (singing) He is born, the holy Child,

Play the oboe and bagpipes merrily!

He is born, the holy Child,

Sing we all of the Savior mild.

Through long ages of the past,

Prophets have foretold His coming;

Through long ages of the past,

Now the time has come at last!

O how lovely, O how pure

Is this perfect Child of heaven;

O how lovely, O how pure

Gracious gift of God to man!

Through long ages of the past,

Prophets have foretold His coming;

Through long ages of the past,

Now the time has come at last!

Jesus, Lord of all the world,

Coming as a Child among us,

Jesus, Lord of all the world,

Grant us all Thy heavenly peace.

Jean-Claude: That was some beautiful singing, boys!

Philippe: Thank you, Jean-Claude!

Christoffe: And Philippe: nice voice.

Philippe: I enjoyed ze fiddle very much!

Jean-Claude: Hey! Get off my foot!

(instrumental)

Philippe: Woo Hoo!

Christoffe: That was a rap, no?

All: (singing) He is born, the holy Child,

Play the oboe and bagpipes merrily!

He is born, the holy Child,

Sing we all of the Savior mild.

Philippe: Oh-ho, zat was beautiful, Jean-Claude!

Christoffe: Thank you, Philippe!

Jean-Claude: Did your dog bite?

Philippe: Zat is not my dog!
