1. Christ the Lord to us is born, Hallelujah!
On this joyous Christmas morn, Hallelujah!

Of a virgin lowly,
He the King most holy,
He the King most holy,
Born this day to save us.

2. Prophesied in days of old, Hallelujah!
God has sent Him as foretold, Hallelujah!

Of a virgin lowly,
He the King most holy,
He the King most holy,
Born this day to save us.

3. Our poor human form He took, Hallelujah!
Realms of heaven He forsook, Hallelujah!

Of a virgin lowly,
He the King most holy,
He the King most holy,
Born this day to save us.

4. Prostrate lies the Evil One, Hallelujah!
God has saved us through His Son, Hallelujah!

Of a virgin lowly,
He the King most holy,
He the King most holy,
Born this day to save us.

5. Grace divine, be with us still, Hallelujah!
Keep us from all harm and ill, Hallelujah!

Of a virgin lowly,
He the King most holy,
He the King most holy,
Born this day to save us.

6. Grant us, Lord, a blessed end, Hallelujah!
To our souls Thy comfort send, Hallelujah!

Of a virgin lowly,
He the King most holy,
He the King most holy,
Born this day to save us.
