Let us haste to Beth­le­hem
On this bless­èd Christ­mas morn;
Let us seek the man­ger’s side,
Where the Son of Man was born.
Hail! All hail! Em­ma­nu­el.

Perfect man! Eter­nal God!
Ruler of the bound­less skies,
There a weak and low­ly child—
Mystery of mys­te­ries!
Hail! All hail! Em­ma­nu­el.

Without speech, yet Coun­se­lor;
In a man­ger, yet a king;
Natural, yet won­der­ful;
Let our glad ho­san­nas ring.
Hail! All hail! Em­ma­nu­el.

Glory to the Fa­ther be;
Glory to the bless­èd Son;
Glory to the Ho­ly Ghost;
Glory to the Three in One,
Throughout eter­ni­ty.
