1. O dawn of peace and gladness,
That breaks from sea to sea!
Behold it shine with joy divine
On ancient Galilee;
For Judah’s star is risen!
Her night is passed away!
The Lord, the King Immanuel,
Is born this holy day!

2. O dawn of peace and gladness,
That thrills the heart of earth!
When bells of joy their tones employ
To tell a Savior’s birth,
When hill and plain and valley
Repeat the angels’ cry,
And sing in mighty chorus,
All praise to God most high!

3. O dawn of peace and gladness,
We read the holy sign;
The tidings sweet our tongues repeat
In songs of praise divine;
For Judah’s star is risen!
Let Zion’s host proclaim;
All hail the Son of David,
O magnify His name!
