Christ the Lord, the Lord most glo­ri­ous,
Is now born: O shout aloud!
By Him man is made vic­to­ri­ous.
Praise your Sav­ior! Hail your God!

Praise the Lord, for on us shineth
Christ the Sun of right­eous­ness;
He to us in love in­clin­eth,
Cheers our souls with par­don­ing grace.

Praise the Lord, whose sav­ing splen­dor
Shines in­to the dark­est night.
O what prais­es shall we ren­der
For this nev­er ceas­ing light!

Praise the Lord, God, our sal­va­tion;
Praise Him who re­trieved our loss.
Sing with awe and love’s sen­sa­tion,
Hallelujah, God with us!
