1. Hail to the morn when Christ was born!
    Hosanna, Hosanna in the highest!
Angels on high sing through the sky:
    Hosanna, Hosanna in the highest!
Shepherds adore the Lamb today:
Kings from the East are on their way;

Chorus:
Sing, then, all in house and hall,
Sing, then, all in house and hall,
    Hosanna, Hosanna!
Christ is born on Christmas-morn,
    Hosanna in the highest!

2. Cedar and pine now cheerily twine:
    Hosanna, Hosanna in the highest!
Crown every scene with evergreen:
    Hosanna, Hosanna in the highest!
Now is the reign of darkness o'er;
Jesus is king for evermore. Chorus:

3. Boughs of the holly this day adorn;
    Hosanna, Hosanna in the highest!
Sharp are the leaves as crowns of thorn;
    Hosanna, Hosanna in the highest!
See in the berries, all blood-red,
Blood, that for us this Babe shall shed. Chorus:

4. Laurel and bay bring forth to-day;
    Hosanna, Hosanna in the highest!
Matchless his might in deadly fight;
    Hosanna, Hosanna in the highest!
Hail to the Child Immanuel!
Conqueror is He of death and hell. Chorus:
