Lo! my heart rejoices,
When I hear sweet voices,
singing “Christ is born
In Bethlehem.”
When I hear the story,
Angels thron'd in glory,
Sang long years ago
o'er Bethlehem.

2

For I know my Saviour
Shews me then His favour,
When I sing His praises
On Christmas morn.
Come, then, all adore Him,
Lowly stand before Him,
For Christ is born.

3

Sinners come in meekness,
Jesus knows your weakness,
Now is born your Saviour
In Bethlehem.
Dawns the promised morrow,
Trial no longer sorrow,
God's new grace abounding
In Bethlehem.

4

Jesus! Long expected,
Tho' by man rejected,
Dwell within my heart O
Emmanuel.
Come! Within me tarry,
Helping me to parry
Satan's fatal darts, O
Emmanuel, Emmanuel.

5

Came a light all beaming,
While the world lay dreaming,
Shedding forth its radiance
O'er all the earth.
Heaven's bright glory reigning;
God from heaven deigning
To dwell a man with us.
O wondrous birth.

6

We new graces gaining,
Christ within is reigning,
Let us seek and find Him
in Bethlehem.
Learn we then to love Him,
Be holy as above Him
The heavenly hosts appearing
O'er Bethlehem, O'er Bethlehem

7

Sing we then to Jesus,
God the Son who frees us
From our earthly burden,
Emmanuel
Lift on high your voices,
Sing! For heaven rejoices
Go hear our songs of praise,
Emmanuel.

8

Lift on high your voices,
Sing! For heaven rejoices
to hear our songs of praise,
to hear our songs of praise,
to hear our songs of praise,
Emmanuel, Emmanuel.
