708. Oh, Come, All Ye Faithful

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

Oh, come, let us adore Him,
Oh, come, let us adore Him,
Oh, come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord!

2 God of God, Light of Light,
Born of a virgin, to earth He comes,
Very God, Begotten, not created. [Refrain]

3 Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation;
Sing, all ye citizens of heav'n 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]
