1 From regions of Love, lo! an Angel descended,
And told the strange news, how the Babe was attended.
"Go Shepherds, and visit this wonderful Stranger,
"See yonder bright star!— there's your God in a manger."
Hallelujah to the Lamb
Who has purchas'd our pardon,
We will praise him again
When we pass over Jordan.
2 Glad tidings I bring unto you and each nation,
Glad tidings of joy, now behold your salvation:
Then sudden a multitude raise their glad voices,
And shout the Redeemer, whole Heaven rejoices. [Chorus]
3 Now glory to God in the highest is given,
Now glory to God, is re-echo'd thro' Heaven:
Around the whole earth let us tell the glad story,
And sing of his love, his salvation and glory. [Chorus]
4 Enraptur'd I burn with delight and desire,
Such love, so divine, sets my soul all on fire:
Around the bright throne now hosannas are ringing,
O, when shall I join them, and ever be singing— [Chorus]
5 Triumphantly ride in thy chariot victorious,
And conquer with love, O Jesu all glorious:
Thy banners unfurl, let the nations surrender,
And own thee their Saviour, their God, and Defender. [Chorus]
