1. Hear the angels telling
Of the Infant King,
Human fears dispelling
With the joy they bring;
We who hear the story
Of celestial grace,
See the Fatherís glory
In the Saviourís face.

2. We may kneel before Him,
Near the lowly stall,
Who is Lord of all;
Faith which God has given,
Pure and undefiled
Sees the King of Heaven
In the lowly Child.

3. God with man abiding
Veiled in flesh we see,
All His glory hiding
In humility.
Man with God united
Through the Incarnate Word,
Wondrously restored!

4. Now we raise our voices
With the angelic throng,
Earth with heaven rejoices
In the Christmas song.
To the God of Heaven,
Ever One in Three,
Laud and praise be given
Through eternity.

Sheet Music from Charles L. Hutchins, Carols Old and Carols New (Boston: Parish Choir, 1916), Carol #376
