1. This day is born Emanuel,
     God with us!
As foretold by Gabriel;
     God with us!
God with us! a Saviour Christ the Lord.

     God with us!
The admirable Child most high,
     God with us!
God with us! a Saviour Christ the Lord.

     God with us!
By the Virgin Mary's grace.
     God with us!
God with us! a Saviour Christ the Lord.

     God with us!
Holy Spirit, Three in One.
     God with us!
God with us! a Saviour Christ the Lord.
