1. Sing, O sing, this blessèd morn,
Unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given,
God Himself comes down from heaven.

Refrain
Sing, O sing, this blessèd morn,
Jesus Christ today is born.

2. God of God, and Light of Light,
Come with mercies infinite,
Joining in a wondrous plan
Heaven to earth and God to man. Refrain

3. God with us, Emmanuel,
Deigns forever more to dwell;
He on Adam's fallen race
Sheds the fullness of His grace. Refrain

4. God comes down that man may rise,
Lifted by Him to the skies;
Christ is Son of Man that we
Sons of God in Him may be. Refrain

5. O renew us, Lord, we pray,
With Thy Spirit day by day,
That we ever one may be
With the Father and with Thee. Refrain

Sheet Music by C. F. Roper from Rev. Charles Lewis Hutchins, Carols Old and Carols New (Boston: Parish Choir, 1916), Carol #99
