The Lord is come, the Lord is come,
The Heav'ns proclaim His Birth
The Nations, the Nations learn His Name,
    the Nations, the Nations learn His Name.

The Lord is come, the Lord is come,
The Heav'ns proclaim His Birth
The Nations, the Nations learn His Name,
    the Nations, the Nations learn His Name.

An unknown Star directs the road of Eastern Sages to their God;
An unknown Star directs the road of Eastern Sages to their God!
    of Eastern Sages to their God!

All ye bright Armies, all ye bright Armies of the Skies!

Go worship where the Saviour lies!
Angels and men before Him bow,
Angels on High, and men below, and men below.

Let Judah shout and Zion sing,
And earth confess her Sovereign King,
    and earth confess her Sovereign King.

Let Judah shout and Zion sing,
Let Judah shout and Zion sing,
And earth confess her Sovereign King,
    and earth confess her Sovereign King,
        her Sovereign King!

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Amen, Amen
