Representative Text

1 O day of days that time can never dim,
O day that lives in Christmas chime and hymn,
When He so strong and yet so meek and mild,
Came even as a little child!

Now awake and carols sing!
Hail the birthday of the King!
Now awake and carols sing!
Hail the birthday of the King!

2 O time of joy and adoration sweet,
When men and angels worshipped at His feet,
When earth and Heav’n resounded with His praise,
Upon that glorious day of days! [Refrain]

3 Some day the Heav’ns a brighter glow shall wear,
When Christ unto the nations shall appear,
When He shall come, but not in lowly guise,
In pow’r and splendor from the skies. [Refrain]
