1. Alleluia, Lord most Holy,
In Thy manger-throne we hail Thee;
Alleluia, meek and lowly,
Never shall our worship fail Thee.
Alleluia, Choirs of Angels
Sing at midnight-hour Thy glory,
To the watchful shepherds telling
From the skies Thy birth-day story.

2. Alleluia, Child of Mary,
Low the shepherds bend before Thee;
Alleluia, eastern Monarchs
With their costliest gifts adore Thee.
Alleluia, still unended
Rings the angel-hymn above;
From our Altars sweetly blending
Echoes earth's response of love.

“Matheson,” Charles W. Pearce, Mus. Doc.
