Hark! a mighty host is singing,
Christ is born! Christ is born!
Thro’ the sky glad strains are winging—
Christ the King is born!
Let us join the swelling chorus
Of the angels singing o’er us;
Peace and gladness are before us—
Christ the King is born!

Refrain

Christ is born! Christ is born!
Born again for men this morn;
Forever praise Him, O magnify Him,
For Christ the King is born!

Spread the news to every nation,
Christ is born! Christ is born!
Fill the air with jubilation—
Christ the King is born!
Hope in hopeless hearts is springing,
Souls long bowed with grief are singing;
Joy to all His birth is bringing—
Christ the King is born!

Refrain

Haste, ye people, haste to greet Him,
Christ is born! Christ is born!
Come with outstretched arms to meet Him—
Christ the King is born!
Ye who long in vain have striven,
Hearts by sin or sorrow riven,
Yours the gift which God has given—
Christ the King is born!

Refrain
