54 - Oh come, all ye faithful
1 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;
Refrein Oh come, let us adore Him,
Oh come, let us adore Him,
Oh come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.
2 True God of true God, Light from Light Eternal,
Lo, He shuns not the Virginís womb;
Son of the Father, begotten, not created;
3 Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation;
Oh sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
Glory to God, all glory in the highest;
4 See how the shepherds, summoned to His cradle,
Leaving their flocks, draw nigh to gaze;
We too will thither bend our joyful footsteps;
5 Lo! star led chieftains, Magi, Christ adoring,
Offer Him incense, gold, and myrrh;
We to the Christ Child bring our heartsí oblations.
6 Child, for us sinners poor and in the manger,
We would embrace Thee, with love and awe;
Who would not love Thee, loving us so dearly?
7 Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning;
Jesus, to Thee be all glory givín;
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing.
