Lyrics

Let the nations all rejoice and sing,
Let them now exalt their rightful King,
Till the distant climes of all the earth
Shall be glad in the Savior’s birth.

Refrain


Sing His praise, all ye lands,
Sing His praise, all ye lands;
Over all the earth
Let the joyful tidings ring;
Praise the name of the Savior King.

O’er the eastern hills the light appears,
Hail the morning star of peaceful years;
’Tis the Promised One so long foretold,
’Tis the Savior we now behold.

Refrain

Come, ye saints of God, your voices raise,
Let the earth be vocal with His praise;
Let the floods and fields, the hills and plains,
Tell with joy that the Savior reigns.
