1. Christians, listen, while we sing,
(Dark, before the dawning)
Praises to our Heavínly King,
On this Christmas morning,
On this Christmas morning.

2. Shepherds came to Bethlehem
(Dark, before the dawning)
And it was commanded them,
On this Christmas morning,
On this Christmas morning.

3. In a manger of the stall,
(Dark, before the dawning)
There they found the Lord of all
On this Christmas morning,
On this Christmas morning.

4. There they found the mother mild,
(Dark, before the dawning)
Gazing on her new-born Child,
On this Christmas morning,
On this Christmas morning.

5. Christian, thou art far from ill?
(Dark, before the dawning)
He will make thee happier still,
On this Christmas morning,
On this Christmas morning.

6. Is an hour of sorrow near?
(Dark, before the dawning)
He will wipe away the tear
On this Christmas morning,
On this Christmas morning.

7. Blessings rest on all within!
(Dark, before the dawning)
Newer life, and hopes begin
On this Christmas morning,
On this Christmas morning.

8. Praise we then our Saviour King,
(Dark, before the dawning)
As the angels once did sing
On this Christmas morning,
On this Christmas morning.

9. "Glory be to God on high,"
(Dark, before the dawning)
"Peace on earth and Charity"
On this Christmas morning,
On this Christmas morning.
