O Come, All Ye Faithful

Representative Text

1 O come, all ye faithful!
Joyfully triumphant,
To Bethlehem hasten now with glad accord;
Lo! in a manger
Lies the King of angels;

O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord!

2 Raise, raise, choirs of angels,
Songs of loudest triumph,
Thro' heaven's high arches be your praises pour'd:
Now to our God be
Glory in the highest; [Refrain]

3 Amen! Lord, we bless Thee,
Born for our salvation!
O Jesus! for ever be Thy Name ador'd;
Word of the Father,
Late in flesh appearing; [Refrain]
