13. Let us all with gladsome voice

1 Let us all with gladsome voice
Praise the God of heaven,
Who to bid our hearts rejoice,
His own Son hath given.

2 Down to this sad earth He comes,
Here to serve us deigning,
That with Him in yon fair homes
We may may once be reigning.

3 We are rich, for He was poor,
Gaze upon this wonder!
Let us praise God evermore
Here on earth and yonder.

4 Look on all who sorrow here,
Lord, in pity bending,
Grant us now a glad New Year.
And a blessed ending.
