Representative Text

1 Sing with joy, 'tis Christmas Morn,
Unto us a Child is born;
Christ hath come on earth to dwell,
God with us, Immanuel!

2 Shepherds, watching thro' the night,
Wondering at the dazzling light,
Hear the glorious Angel tell
Of the Hope of Israel.

3 Thousand thousand angels raise
Songs of glad triumphant praise;
Singing, through the starry sky,
"Glory be to God on High!"

4 Joyously the shepherds ran,
Knelt to Jesus--God and Man;
"Come," they bid us haste with them,
"See the Babe of Bethlehem"!

5 Jesus! whom we now adore,
May we love Thee more and more;
As by faith we, wondering, see
This Thy great humility!
