Lyrics

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!
