1 Jacob’s star is ris’n at last,
Brighter than the brightest sun:
Darkness is for ever past,
And the joyful day begun.
2 Sing aloud, the cause is great;
Sing ye heav’ns, and sing thou earth:
Still the joyful theme repeat,
Joyful theme, Emanuel’s birth.
3 This is Jacob’s promised star,
Giving light to all around;
Shining clear and seen afar,
Seen to earth’s remotest bound.
4 Sing the Infant, virgin-born,
He a king, a king by birth;
Though the mark of human scorn;
Heir of all in Heav’n and earth.
5 Now ye saints, dry up your tears;
See, the day is come at last:
Jacob’s promised star appears,
Darkness is for ever past.
