Published in 5 hymnals
1 From heav'n above to earth I come
To bring good news to ev'ryone!
Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To all the world and gladly sing:
2 To you this night is born a child
Of Mary, chosen virgin mild;
This new-born child of lowly birth
Shall be the joy of all the earth.
3 This is the Christ, God's Son most high,
Who hears your sad and bitter cry;
He will himself your Savior be
And from all sin will set you free.
4 The blessing which the Father planned
The Son holds in his infant hand
That in his kingdom, bright and fair,
You may with us his glory share.
5 These are the signs which you will see
To let you know that it is he:
In manger bed, in swaddling clothes
The child who all the earth upholds.
6 How glad we'll be to find it so!
Then with the shepherds let us go
To see what God for us has done
In sending us his own dear Son.
7 Look, look, dear friends, look over there!
What lies within that manger bare?
Who is that lovely little one?
The baby Jesus, God's dear Son.
