One and all, come let us sing
On this birthday of our king!
How the blessèd Christ was born
On the happy Christmas morn.


Glory! Glory!
Glory in the highest! Glory!
Glory! Glory!
Glory to our heav’nly king!

Jesus came a little child,
Holy, harmless, meek and mild;
Came to reign o’er all the earth
Though so lowly was His birth.


Not upon a royal throne,
But in human hearts alone;
One and all, we’ll make Him room,
Suffer such, said He, to come.


Folded warmly to His heart,
Never from His love to part;
May each find a happy place
In the kingdom of His grace.


Then, when earthly scenes are past,
One and all, may we at last
Find that Jesus makes us room,
To His glory bids us come.
