1. Awake, my soul, awake, my tongue,
My glory wake and sing,
And celebrate the holy birth,
The birth of Israelís King!

2. O happy night that brought forth light,
Which makes the blind to see,
The Dayspring from on high came down
To cheer and visit thee.

3. The careful shepherds with their flocks
Were watching for the morn,
But better news from heavín was brought;
Your Savior now is born!

4. In Bethlehem the Infant lies,
Within a place obscure,
Your Saviorís come, O sing Godís praise!
O sing His praise foreíer.
