1 Christ is born! and heavenly glory
Shines on Bethlehem’s darkened sky;
Christ is born! O joyful story!
Man’s redemption draweth nigh.
2 "Christ is born!" the herald angel
Sings the anthem sweet and clear,
"Christ is born!" the bright evangel
Sings, while wondering shepherds hear.
3 “Christ is born! peace, joy, and blessing
Welcome news to all I bring;
Christ is born, all love possessing,
Jesus, Son of God, is King!
4 "Christ is born! and in a manger
They the holy Babe have laid;
Christ is born! the heavenly stranger
You shall find, be not afraid."
5 "Christ is born!" the host of Heaven
Hovering over Judah’s plain,
"Christ is born! Messiah given!"
Loud they sing the glad refrain.
6 Christ is born, the Savior, glorious,
Comes to suffer, comes to die;
Christ is born to live victorious,
Born to reign eternally.
