Representative Text

1 O come with cheerful voices,
Your grateful tribute raise;
While all the earth rejoices
In hymns of holy praise.

O come with joy and gladness
Before the mercy-sea;
To God your King
Glad praises sing,
And worship at his feet.

2 Our blessed Lord hath given,
To guide us on our way,
The light of truth from heaven
Which brighter shines each day. [Refrain]

3 Then let us all endeavor
To worship him aright,
And join the hosts that ever
Adore him day and night. [Refrain]
