Eben E. Rexford
(1848–1916)

Let every voice with gladness sing,
From mountains to the sea;
In praise and honor of the King
They crowned on Calvary.

Refrain

Let every heart repeat again
The choral of the day
Be peace on earth, to men good will;
Let strife and discord die!

Oh, Savior, in a manger born,
Accept the love we bring,
As shepherds brought on Christmas morn
Their offering to the King.

Refrain

Dear Savior, let us at Thy feet
Our tribute offering lay;
And may these gifts of ours be sweet
With gratitude today.

Refrain

Dear Lord, we bring our hearts to Thee,
Accept them as Thine own;
And let us celebrate with Thee
Thy birthday by the throne.
