50. Come hither, ye faithful

1 Come hither, ye faithful,
Triumphantly sing!
Come, see in the manger
The angels' dread King;
To Bethlehem hasten
With joyful accord!
Oh come ye, come hither,
Oh come ye, come hither,
Oh 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 doth not despise,
To Bethlehem hasten
With joyful accord!
Oh come ye, come hither,
Oh come ye, come hither,
Oh 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!
Oh come ye, come hither,
Oh come ye, come hither,
Oh come ye, come hither,
To worship the Lord!

4 To Thee, then, O Jesu,
This day of Thy birth,
Be glory and honor
Through heaven and earth;
True Godhead Incarnate!
Omnipotent Word!
Oh, come let us hasten
To worship the Lord!

Amen.
