Lyrics

Sing again the bless­èd sto­ry,
Till with joy each heart shall glow,
Angels bright, from realms of glo­ry,
Told to sin­ful man be­low;
While the world is qui­et sleep­ing,
While the stars their light un­fold,
Let us hear the joy­ful an­them
Angels sang to harps of gold.

Refrain

Welcome, wel­come, bless­èd Je­sus,
Give Thy peace to us to­day;
Glory, in the high­est glo­ry,
Be unto Thy name al­way!

Glory, in the high­est glo­ry!
We would know the tid­ings sweet,
Hasten on­ward, glad­ly on­ward,
Like the shep­herds Christ to greet;
He has come, the bless­èd Je­sus,
Born to us this hap­py day,
In our hearts, most ho­ly Stran­ger,
We will wel­come Thee al­way.
