Shepherds heard the glad refrain
On the early Advent morn,
And we join the heavenly strain:
Jesus Christ, the Lord, is born!

Refrain

The good tidings proclaim,
Christ is born! Christ is born!
Till the world shall believe in His name;
Christ is born! Christ is born!

As the wise men haste to meet,
And their costly presents give,
So we come the Christ to greet;
He our best gifts shall receive.

Refrain

Glory in the highest sing,
Peace on earth, good will to men;
Let the bells of gladness ring,
Christ is born, Savior of men!

Refrain

Jesus Christ shall save from sin;
Praise Him on this Advent morn!
Let Him be enthroned within!
Christ is born! the Christ is born!
