1 Stars all bright are beaming,
From the skies above,
Nature's face all gleaming,
Shines with Heaven's own love.
Wake and sing, good Christians,
On this Birthday Morn,
Heaven and Earth are telling
God for man is born.

2 Here for us abiding,
Cradled in a stall,
All His glory hiding,
See the Lord of all!
Wake and sing, etc.

3 Born that He might lead us,
From this desert home,
Guide our way, and feed us,
Till the end shall come.
Wake and sing, etc.

4 Thousand thousand blessings
Sing we for His love,
Choral hymns addressing
To our Lord above.
Wake and sing, etc.

5 Glory in the highest,
For this wondrous birth;
Choir of heaven! thou criest
Peace to all the earth!
Wake and sing, etc.
