1. Jesus Christ is born today:
Up and sing the festal lay;
Up and with glad Cherubim
Chant to God the Christmas Hymn.

2. Hail the night, and hail the morn,
That beheld the Saviour born!
When in Bethlem’s wakeful fold
Tidings good an angel told.

3. Tidings full of joy and grace
To each son of Adam’s race:
God in form of man array’d
God for man a servant made.

4. Thus to Thee we pour the lay,
On Thy happy natal day:
Virgin-born, Thy praise we sing,
Son of the eternal King.
