1. Behold the Saviour comes
Lovely in Infant form,
E'en Angels praise and worship Him,
Salvation's mighty Arm.
    E'en Angels praise and worship Him,
    Salvation's mighty Arm.

2. Shout! sing to His dear name,
Eternal God and Lord;
Declare His love, His praise proclaim,
Lo! 'tis the mighty word.
    Declare His love, His praise proclaim,
    Lo! 'tis the mighty word.

3. O let each heart give thanks
Rejoice in Christ the way
Declare His wonders all abroad,
Jesus is born today,
    Declare His wonders all abroad,
    Jesus is born today.

4. For us He is come down
Sinners and rebels all
Unto Him humbly let us go,
Since mercy's in His call,
    Unto Him humbly let us go,
    Since mercy's in His call
