283. 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;

O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him, Christ, the Lord!

2 The highest, most holy,
light of light eternal,
born of a virgin, a mortal he comes;
Son of the Father now in flesh appearing! [Refrain]

3 O sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation,
sing, all ye citizens of heav'n above:
glory to God, glory in the highest; [Refrain]

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