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.


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.


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.
