298. Christ the Lord, the Lord Most Glorious

1 Christ the Lord, the Lord most glorious,
now is born; O shout aloud!
We by him are made victorious;
praise the Savior, hail our God!

2 Praise the Lord! On us is shining
Christ, the sun of righteousness;
he, to us in love inclining,
cheers our souls with pard'ning grace.

3 Praise the Lord! whose saving splendor
shines into the darkest night;
O what praises shall we render
for this never-ceasing light.

4 Praise the Lord, God our salvation,
praise him who retrieved our loss;
sing, with awe and love's sensation,
hallelujah, God with us.
