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.

Refrain
