1 Lift up your heads in joyful hope,
Salute the happy morn;
Each heav'nly pow'r
Proclaims the glad hour,
Lo Jesus the Saviour is born.

2 All glory be to God on high,
To him all praise is due;
The promise seal'd,
The Saviour's reveal'd
And proves that the record is true.

3 Let joy around like rivers flow,
Flow on, and still increase;
Spread o'er the glad earth
At Jesus his birth,
For heav'n and earth are at peace.

4 Now the good-will of heav'n is shown,
Tow'rds Adam's helpless race,
Messiah is come
To ransom his own,
To sae them by infinite grace.

5 Then let us join the heav'ns above,
Where hymning seraphs sing,
Join all the glad pow'rs,
For their Lord is ours,
Our prophet, our priest, and our king.
