Hymn Lyrics

 Hymn: Oh, Come all ye Faithful                                159

Oh come, all ye faithful,
joyful and triumphant;
oh come ye, oh come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold him,
born the King of angels:

Refrain:
Oh come, let us adore him;
oh come, let us adore him;
oh come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.

God of God,
Light of light,
born unto Mary, the virgin blest,
very God,
begotten, not created:

Refrain:
Oh come, let us adore him;
oh come, let us adore him;
oh come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.

Sing, choirs of angels;
sing in exultation;
sing, all ye citizens of heaven above:
“Glory to God
in the highest! ”

 

To the Maid Whose Name was Mary                  130

To a maid whose name was Mary, the angel Gabriel came.
“Fear not,” the angel told her, “I come to bring good news;
good news I come to tell you, good news, I say good news.”

“For you are highly favoured by God the Lord of all,
who even now is with you. You are on earth most blest;
you are most blest, most blessed; God chose you, you are blest!”

As Mary heard the angel, she wondered at his words.
“Behold I am your handmaid,” she said unto her God.
“So be it; I am ready according to Your word.”

 

Hark! the Herald Angels Sing                                   139

Hark! the herald angels sing
glory to the newborn King,
peace on earth and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled.
Joyful, all ye nations, rise;
join the triumph of the skies;
with the angelic host proclaim,
“Christ is born in Bethlehem.”
Hark! the herald angels sing
glory to the newborn King.

Christ, by highest heaven adored,
Christ, the everlasting Lord,
late in time behold him come,
offspring of a virgin’s womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see!
Hail the incarnate deity!
Pleased on earth with us to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel.
Hark! the herald angels sing
glory to the newborn King.

Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the sun of righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings,
risen with healing in his wings.
Mild, he lays his glory by,
born that we no more may die,
born to raise the lost of earth,
born to give us second birth.
Hark! the herald angels sing
glory to the newborn King.
