Birth of Christ

Hymnal: A Selection of Psalms and Hymns #CCLXXXVI (1790) Topics: Birth of Christ First Line: What good news the angels bring Lyrics: 1 What good news the angels bring What glad tidings of our King CHRIST our LORD is born to-day, CHRIST who takes our sins away. Him, who rules in heav'n and earth, Hath in Bethleh'm his birth: Him shall all the people see, And rejoice eternally. 2 Lift your hearts and voices high, With Hosannas fill the sky; "Glory be to GOD above," GOD is invinite in love: "Peace on earth, good will to men!" Now with us our GOD is seen: Angels join with us in praise! Help to sing redeeming grace. 3 Now the wall is broken down, Now the Gospel is made known; Now the door is open wide, CHRIST for Jew and Gentile dy'd. All who feel the wieght of sin, All who languish to be clean; All who for redemption groan, May be sav'd by faith alone. 4 JESUS is the lovely nane; This the angel doth proclaim; He shall all his people save, They in him remission ahve: When thy see themselves undone, They take refuge in the Son; They shall all be born again, And with him in glory reign. 5 Shout ye nations of the earth, Sing the triumphs of his birth; All the world by him is blest, Sound his praise from East to West: Jews and Gentiles jointly sing, CHRIST our common LORD and King, CHRIST our life, our joy, our song, To eternity prolong!

And my heart shall rejoice, Lord Jesus, When thou comest and callest for me. Amen. Scripture: Matthew 8:20 Languages: English Tune Title: MARGARET
