He has come, the world’s Redeemer,
Precious gift of Heaven to earth;
Shout aloud the joyful tidings
Of the dear Redeemer’s birth.


Praise Him! praise Him!
Shout aloud the joyful tidings;
Praise Him! praise Him!
Christ our Savior now is here.

Let us give Him gladly welcome
To our hearts and homes today;
He for sin has full forgiveness
As we penitently pray.


In His hands are wondrous treasures,
Which no other can bestow;
Healing for the brokenhearted,
Sweetest comfort we can know.
