1. Hark! the full-voic’d Choir is singing,
As the midnight darkness flies;
Heavenly Angels now are bringing
Peaceful tidings from the skies.

Chorus:
Hail! O Jesus! Hail! O Jesus!
Sun of Righteousness, arise!
Sun of Righteousness arise!

2. Yes, behold the Day of Glory
Dawn at length for all the earth;
List, the Cherubs tell the story, --
"This the Day of Jesus’ Birth."
Hail! O Jesus, Hail! O Jesus!
Day-spring from on High, shine forth! Chorus

3. Lo, he comes! His Throne the Manger,
Shepherds, seek His Shrine the Stall;
Ox and ass behold the Stranger,
God, who made and governs all!
Hail! O Jesus! Hail! O Jesus!
Hail Thy glorious festival! Chorus

4. Mortals, raise your loudest voices,

Jesus lifts on high your horn;
Earth redeems today rejoices,
For today her Lord is born!
Hail! O Jesus! Hail! O Jesus!
Hail, all hail this sacred morn! Chorus
