Adeste Fideles Translations

1. Come, all ye faithful, joyfully triumphant,
    Come ye to Bethlehem with one accord :
Born King of Angels, see the Infant Saviour ;
    O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord !

2. Yea, God of God, and Light of Light eternal,
    He the meek Virgin’s womb hath not abhorr’d :
True God of True God, Begotten, uncreated !
    O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord !

3. Sing, all ye angels, sing in exultation,
    High through the skies be His great Name ador’d:
Glory to God ! all glory in the highest !
    O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord !

4. Jeau, Redeemer! born this day to save us,
    Loud shall our songs of praise to Thee be pour'd:
Word of the Father ! now in flesh appearing!
    O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord !
