Representative Text

1 Chime the bells! lift high your voices!
Bring rich gifts, for well you may!
All mankind this day rejoices—
Mary’s Son was born today!

Sweep your harps, you host forgiven!
Night gave way to breaking morn;
Swinging gates gave glimpse of Heaven
On that day the Christ was born.

2 Let our songs abound in gladness,
let our homes be bright and gay!
Let all hearts forget their sadness—
Christ the Lord was born today! [Refrain]

3 Let our songs in vast assembly,
Worship God for gift so great;
Babe today, but years of manhood
Made His cross our best estate! [Refrain]
