379. O Come, All Ye Faithful

1 O come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant!
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold Him
Born the king of angels;

Refrain:
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord!

2 Highest, most holy,
Light of Light eternal,
Born of a virgin, a mortal He comes;
Son of the Father
Now in flesh appearing!

3 Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
Glory to God
In the highest: [Refrain]

4 Yea, Lord, we greet Thee,
Born this happy morning;
Jesus, to Thee be glory giv'n!
Word of the Father
Now in flesh appearing! [Refrain]

Spanish:

1 Venid, fieles todos, a Belén vayamos
de gozo triunfantes henchidos de amor;
y al rey de los cielos humildes vermos:

Estrabillo:
Venid, adoremos, venid, adoremos,
venid, adoremos a Cristo el Señor.

2 En pobre pesebre yace él reclinado,
al hombre ofreciendo eternal salvación,
el santo Mesías, el Verbo huminado: [Estrabillo]

3 Jesús, celbramos tu bendito nombre
Con himnos solemnes de grato loor;
por siglos eternos adórete el hombre: [Estrabillo]
