If you know where to get a good pho­to of Fletch­er (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


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.


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.


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.
