1. See! the morning star is dwelling
On the Eastern mountain height;
See! The Day all days excelling,
Bursts upon our aching sight;
Sing we then in carol free,
Christus Natus Hodie
Christus Natus, Christus Natus,
Christus Natus Hodie.

2. Long our watch has been and dreary,
Long we wandered from afar;
So the wise men, worn and weary,
Till the Day-Spring's Self they see,
Christus Natus Hodie
Christus Natus, Christus Natus,
Christus Natus Hodie.

3. Hence away! All cares and sadness!
Hence, and ne'er return again!
Angels sing with notes of gladness
Peace on earth, Good-will to men.
Join we then in carol free,
Christus Natus Hodie
Christus Natus, Christus Natus,
Christus Natus Hodie.
