417. Rejoice, Rejoice This Happy Morn

Rejoice, rejoice this happy morn,
A Savior unto us is born,
The Christ, the Lord of glory;
His lowly birth in Bethlehem
The angels from on high proclaim,
And sing redemption's story;
My soul, extol God's great favor,
Bless Him ever for salvation,
Give Him praise and adoration!
