Representative Text

1 Sweet carols let us sing; rich offerings let us bring
To our Redeemer King, who reigns in glory.
From Heav’n to earth He came; praise to His holy name!
Let all redeemed from shame rehearse the story.

2 Above angelic lays our Christmas hymns we raise;
With heart and voice we praise the infant Jesus.
The song ascends on high; it soars above the sky;
And echo gives reply, from sin He frees us.

3 For He, the humble born, in poverty forlorn,
Subject to bitter scorn, and vile behavior;
The Great and Holy One, was God’s anointed Son,
Who by His deeds hath won, the name of Savior.

4 Then on this natal day, our tribute let us pay,
And in a joyful lay unite our voices.
Loud will we raise the song, still sweetest strain prolong;
Thy Church, in one vast throng, O Lord, rejoices.
