Representative Text

1 Hark! how the bells at midnight hour,
Telling their tale from tower to tower,
Bringing glad tidings to the morn,
Merrily are ringing, Christ is born.

2 Hark to the songs of heavenly love
Angels are hymning from above;
Hark! as again we hear them sing,
Glory in the highest; Christ is King!

3 Hail to the King! who comes so meek,
Hail to the Child! so poor, so weak,
Hail to the Son! our God, the Word,
Alleluia! praise ye Christ, the Lord.

4 Come, Christians, come and joyous greet
Jesus, the Child; with welcome meet;
Bringing salvation, born for you—
Laud Him then with hearts and voices true.
