Song of the Angels
William Bouguereau, 1881

Today we celebrate Jesus’ birthday,
That prophets spoke of long ago.
God sent His Son to save us from sin
And show us how we should live.
Born to a virgin, poor and lowly,
Laid in a manger,
Our precious Lamb of God!
Sing our praises to our King!
Sing our praises, let them ring!
Jesus Christ is born today!

Angels proclaimed to shepherds at night that
Jesus was born in Bethlehem.
Quickly with joy they ran to the manger
Where the baby Christ-Child lay.
Bowing in worship, awe, and wonder,
They knelt before their
Dear little King of kings!
Sing all praises to the King!
Sing all praises, let them ring!
Jesus Christ is born today!

Come, celebrate our Lord Jesus’ birthday,
Know that to save us He has come;
Accept His gift of love and salvation;
Let us crown Him Lord of all!
For He alone is worthy of glory,
Worthy of honor,
And all our praises!
Sing our praises to our King!
Sing our praises, let them ring!
Jesus Christ is born today!
Jesus Christ is born today!
