Christ the Savior is here,
Let the world with welcome ring;
Praises sound far and near,
For the advent of the King.


Joy to the world! the Lord is come;
Let earth receive her king;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heav’n and nature sing,
And Heav’n and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.

Christ the Shepherd of souls,
Our Redeemer and our Lord,
Heav’n its monarch extols,
And proclaims His birth abroad.


Christ, exalted above,
Now begins His glorious reign.
Every heart is His throne,
And the earth is His domain.
