1. Lo! unto us a Child is born,
The Lord of Life and Love!
To call us all this Christmas Morn,
To call us all this Christmas Morn,
To happiness above, To happiness above,
To happiness, To happiness above.

2. Glory to God, in Highest Heaven,
To men of good-will Peace, --
The Angel said, -- A Son is given,
The Angel said, -- A Son is given,
Whose kingdom shall increase, Whose kingdom shall increase
Whose kingdom shall, Whose kingdom shall increase.

3. Then Carols sing, good Christians all,
With Angel Hosts above, --
For Christ we keep the festival,
For Christ we keep the festival,
And Jesus owns our love, And Jesus owns our love,
And Jesus owns, And Jesus owns our love.

4. And thus let all the ransomed earth
Resound with harmony;
For our Redeemer's humble Birth
For our Redeemer's humble Birth
Laud we the One in Three, Laud we the One in Three,
Laud we the One, Laud we the One in Three.
