Christ is born, the promised Savior,
Heaven with joyous music rings;
Christ is born, the Lord’s anointed,
Prince of peace and King of kings.
Round the earth the message send:
Never shall His kingdom end.
Though His infant head was cradled
In a manger of the khan,
Angel hosts are His attendants,
Son of God and Son of man.
Christ is born, O blessèd story!
Ages old, yet ever new;
Christ is born, extol, enshrine Him,
Give the King His rightful due.
