Representative Text

1 Let every voice with gladness sing,
From mountains to the sea;
In praise and honor of the King
They crowned on Calvary.

Let every heart repeat again
The choral of the day
Be peace on earth, to men good will;
Let strife and discord die!

2 Oh, Savior, in a manger born,
Accept the love we bring,
As shepherds brought on Christmas morn
Their offering to the King. [Refrain]

3 Dear Savior, let us at Thy feet
Our tribute offering lay;
And may these gifts of ours be sweet
With gratitude today. [Refrain]

4 Dear Lord, we bring our hearts to Thee,
Accept them as Thine own;
And let us celebrate with Thee
Thy birthday by the throne. [Refrain]
