Representative Text

1 O let your mingling voices rise
In grateful rapture to the skies,
And hail a Savior’s birth;
Let songs of joy the day proclaim,
When Jesus all-triumphant came,
To bless the sons of earth.

2 He comes to bid the weary rest,
To heal the sinner’s wounded breast,
To bind the broken heart;
To spread the light of truth around,
And to the world’s remotest bound
The heavenly gift impart.

3 He comes our sinking souls to save,
From sin, from sorrow, and the grave,
And chase our fears away;
Triumphant over death and time,
To lead us to a happier clime,
Where reigns eternal day.

4 Then let your mingling voices rise,
In grateful rapture to the skies,
And hail a Savior’s birth;
Let songs of joy the day proclaim,
When Jesus all-triumphant came,
To bless the sons of earth.
