Lyrics

All hail! all hail! this coronation day;
It comes to us along the heav’nly way;
It brings again the song of peace,
The words of hope and cheer,
The Gospel true of glad goodwill,
To human hearts so dear.

Refrain

Hail! hail! hail! all hail! glad hallelujahs sing;
O hail the coronation day and crown the Christ our king.
Hail! hail! hail! O welcome, welcome, day divine;
The King has come! His glory on the world doth shine.

All hail! all hail! this blessèd Christmastide:
May love divine within our hearts abide;
Now ring the sweet-toned Christmas bells,
O angels, sing once more
Your song of praise, while loyal hearts
The Holy One adore.

Refrain

All hail! all hail! this coronation day;
The King has come, His glory fills the way;
The Word descended from the throne;
Before the world was He,
The Father’s everlasting Son,
From all eternity.

Refrain
