12356. 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.

Glory in the highest, glory give today,
Tell the blessèd 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. [Refrain]

3 Soon will the daystar shining so bright,
Turn the gloom to glory, darkness into light;
Glad hallelujah sing on this morn,
For our Savior king is born. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]
