85. Christ is Born

1 List to the music over the earth,
Loud the merry joy-bells tell of Jesus' birth;
Join in the music, for on this morn,
Christ, our Lord and King is born.

Chorus:
Glory in the highest, glory give today,
Tell the blessed story, sound aloud the lay;
Ring out the tidings for on this morn,
Christ, our Lord and King is born.

2 Peace he is bringing, goodwill to men,
Gifts of grace and glory, tell it once again;
O may our hearts for love, Lord, of thee,
One eternal Christmas be. [Chorus]

3 Soon will the day-star shining so bright,
Turn the gloom to glory,—darkness into light;
Glad hallelujah sing on this morn,
For our Savior, King is born. [Chorus]

4 Oh! star of beauty' light up the way,
Where thy glory shineth from the gates of day:
And in our hearts this bright Christmas morn,
May our Lord and King be born. [Chorus]
