1 Shepherds keeping watch by night,
Saw around a glorious light;
Heard an angel then proclaim,
"Christ is born in Bethlehem!"

Refrain:
Ring the merry songs today,
Sweetly chime Messiah’s morn;
Glad we hail this peaceful way,
"Christ the Lord for man is born!"

2 Soon by many a heav’nly tongue
Glory be to God was sung,
Peace on earth, good will to men,
Christ is born in Bethlehem. [Refrain]

3 Joyful tidings to mankind!
Richest grace they now may find;
Children, too, this grace may claim,
Christ is born in Bethlehem. [Refrain]

4 Oh! how great His grace and love,
Thus to leave His throne above;
Thus to bear our guilt and shame,
And be born in Bethlehem. [Refrain]

5 Lord! accept our warmest praise
For this condescending grace,
And our hearts with love inflame,
For Thy birth in Bethlehem. [Refrain]
