1 Tell, O tell the Christmas story,
Children who to Christ belong!
Give to God the Father glory—
All creation swell the song!
Tell, O tell the Christmas story,
Tell it with exulting voice!
Christ is born, the Lord of glory;
Christ is come, let earth rejoice!
2 Tell of shepherds who were frighted
By a shining host that sang
News of joy to men benighted,
While the listening midnight rang. [Refrain]
3 Tell the story of the manger,
Of the Child and of His star;
Tell of Egypt’s flight from danger;
Tell of wise men from afar. [Refrain]
4 Ah, but first in all your telling
Be the love of God to men!
Hail! Immanuel, with us dwelling,
Sound the note of praise again! [Refrain]
