Unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.@Luke 2:11

Edith S. Tillotson, 1910.

With songs of hallelujah we greet the Christmastide,
While anthems of rejoicing resound on every side.
The sky is all illumined with Bethl’m’s shining star;
It sends the Christmas message to nations near and far.

Refrain

Hallelujah! Sing for joy, O sing!
Hallelujah! Hail the newborn King!
Hallelujah! Sing for joy, O sing!
Hallelujah! Hail the blessèd King of kings!

With songs of hallelujah we gather here today,
To tell the Christmas story, and bear its gift away;
The gift of peace eternal, and love that cannot die,
But leads us on to glory, in Heaven’s arches high.

Refrain

With songs of hallelujah this day of days we greet,
And gather round the Christ Child, to worship at His feet.
He is the King of glory, His reign shall never cease;
He rules our hearts forever, in all goodwill and peace.
