1. The day of redemption
    Hath come with a song --|
The song of redemption
    From sin so strong.
The angels first changed it
    Over a hill,
As Christmas returned
    It echoes still.

Hail! Hail! day of redemption!
    Hark the angel chorus rings!
Hail! Hail! day of redemption!
    Bow before the King of Kings!

2. Redemption most wonderful!
    Gift from the sky
 Redeemer most gentle,
    So low to lie!
O herald so glorious!
    Sent from above,
To speak to the shepherds
    Of God's great love. Chorus.

3. O marvel of tenderness!
    Marvel of light!
The King from the glory,
    So wondrous bright!
Is resting all quietly
    Pillowed on hay,
And gone is earth's darkness!
    Behold! 'tis day! Chorus.
