This is the happy Christmas mornTune: MACHT HOCH DIE TÜR (Freylinghausen)
Published in 3 hymnals
1 This is the happy Christmas morn,
This is the day the Christ was born;
Loud let the song of triumph ring;
Hosanna to our Savior King!
Joy to the world, the Lord has come!
Prepare the holy Christ-child room;
Lo, see, the Day-star dawneth bright!
O blessed Star, be Thou our light!
Thou heav'nly Guide,
With us abide! Amen.
2 Let heaven and earth with gladness ring!
The Savior comes, the new-born King!
Behold Him in a manger laid,
Sweet Babe in swaddling clothes arrayed:
He, the eternal Word of grace,
Comes down to save our fallen race.
Let earth rejoice in highest strains!
Glory to God, Messiah reigns!
In Him confide,
Whate'er betide! Amen.
3 Bright angel choirs in glitt'ring train,
With grand hosannas sweep the plain;
And unto humble shepherds bring
Tidings of Christ, the heav'nly King.
O loving Savior of our race,
In whom the rich and poor find grace,
We'll spread Thy Gospel's cheering ray!
Thou art the Life, the Truth, the Way:
Thyself accord To us, O Lord! Amen.
