Come, all ye faithful, join the march triumphant,
And hasten, hasten, to Bethlehem;
Within the crib, there lies the true, the Great Messiah.

Oh, come and let us worship,
Oh come and let us worship,
Oh come and let us worship Christ the Lord,
Oh come and let us worship Christ the Lord.

Great God eternal, Light from light proceeding,
How cold and bare is this midnight cave!
In fear and love, thrice Holy God, we here adore Thee:

Dear Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning;
To Thee, O Jesus, be glory giv'n;
Salvation comes from Thee, Thou heaven sent Redeemer:
