Good tidings, good tidings!
A Savior is born!
Great joy to all people,
Their sorrow is gone.
With gladness we worship
And bow at His feet,
With joyous thanksgiving
His praises repeat!

Refrain

Good tidings, good tidings!
Good tidings we bring!
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujahs we sing!

Great Savior, how wondrous
Thy love to our race,
To come and redeem us,
And save us by grace!
To leave Thy blest kingdom
Of glory on high,
And for our redemption
To suffer and die!

Refrain

O wonderful Jesus—
The children’s best friend!
To praise and adore Thee
Our voices we blend.
With heartfelt devotion
We sing of Thy grace,
And join with the angels
In chanting Thy praise!
