O may we lose our useless Tongues, when they forget to praise! 8 Glory to God that reigns above, That pitied us forlorn, We join to sing our Maker's Love, for there's a Saviour born.

A thrill of hope the weary soul rejoices, for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn! Fall on your knees! O hear the angel voices! O night divine! O night when Christ was born! O night divine! O night, O night divine! 2 Led by the light of faith serenely beaming, with glowing hearts by his cradle we stand; so led by light of a star sweetly gleaming, here came the wise men from Orient land. The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger, in all our trials born to be our friend; he knows our need, he guards us from all danger. Behold your King; before him lowly bend! Behold your King; before Him lowly bend! 3 Truly he taught us to love one another; his law is love and his gospel is peace. Chains shall he break, for the slave is our brother, and in his name all oppression shall cease. Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raising, let all within us praise his holy name. Christ is the Lord! O praise His name forever! His power and glory evermore proclaim! His power and glory evermore proclaim! Used With Tune: CANTIQUE DE NOEL

To you, in David’s town, this day is born, of David’s line, The Saviour, who is Christ the Lord; and this shall be the sign: The heav’nly Babe you there shall find to human view displayed, All meanly wrapt in swaddling-bands, and in a manger laid. 138 Thus spake the seraph; and forthwith appeared a shining throng Of angels, praising God; and thus addressed their joyful song: All glory be to God on high, and to the earth be peace; Good-will is shown by Heav’n to men, and never more shall cease.
