1 Have you heard the wondrous story,
How messiah came to earth?
Angels from the realms of glory
Bro’t the message of His birth.
Unto Bethlehem of Juda,
He our Lord and King is come;
Heav’n and earth rejoice together,
Christ will lead His people home.
“Glory, glory in the highest,”
Hear the blessed angels sing,
“Peace on earth, good will, hosanna,
How their silv’ry voices ring.
2 Nevermore may sin enthrall us,
For a Saviour God hath giv’n;
Nevermore may death appall us,
It is but the gate of heav’n.
Joy, O earth, shout forth in gladness,
Jesus comes His own to bless;
Banish’d ev’ry doubt and sadness,
Gilded is earth’s wilderness. [Refrain]
3 Jesus comes to hearts aweary,
Comes to comfort, and abide;
Life may not seem dark and dreary,
For His own Christ lived and died,
And is ris’n, triumphant, glorious;
Blest the day He came in love,
To redeem His chosen people,
Fit them for His home above. [Refrain]
