Representative Text

1. NOW raise your happy voice,
Sing all and loud rejoice,
Lowly there reclineth
Our heart's delight so blest,
As the sun He shineth
Upon His mother's breast;
Thou art A and O!
Thou art A and O!

2. O Son of God on high,
For Thee I weep and sigh;
Comfort my sad spirit,O fairest, purest Child.
Through Thy grace and merit,
O Jesus meek and mild,
Draw me hence to Thee,
Draw me hence to Thee.

3. How rich His love God proves!
The Son our guilt removes.
When man's sinful nation
Lay dead in vanity,
He brought us salvation,
All heaven's ecstasy.
O that we were there!
O that we were there!

4. Where are those mansions fair?
In that blest yonder, where
Angel choirs are singing
Around the Christ-child dear,
And their harps keep ringing
In heaven sweet and clear.
O that we were there!
O that we were there!
