15. Come hither, ye faithful, triumphantly sing

1 Come hither, ye faithful, triumphantly sing:
Come, see in the manger the angels' great king!
To Bethlehem hasten with joyful accord;
O come ye, come hither to worship the Lord!

2 True Son of the Father, He comes from the skies,
To be born of a virgin He does not despise;
To Bethlehem hasten with joyful accord;
O come ye, come hither to worship the Lord!

3 Hark, hark to the angels, all singing in heaven,
"To God in the highest all glory be given!"
To Bethlehem hasten with joyful accord;
O come ye, come hither to worship the Lord!

4 To Thee, then, O Jesus, this day of Thy birth,
Be glory and honor through heaven and earth.
True Godhead incarnate! omnipotent Word!
O come, let us hasten to worship the Lord!
