1 Blessed night, when first that plain,
Echoed with the joyful strain:
"Peace has come to earth again."
2 Blessèd hills that heard the song
Of the glorious angel throng
Swelling all your slopes along.
3 Happy shepherds on whose ear
Fell the tidings glad and clear,
"God to man is drawing near."
4 Thus revealed to shepherd's eyes,
Hidden from the great and wise,
Entering earth in lowly guise--
5 We adore Thee as our King,
And to Thee our song we sing;
Our best offering to Thee bring.
6 Blessèd Babe of Bethlehem,
Owner of earth's diadem,
Claim and wear the radiant gem.
