1. Ye mortals all, rejoice and sing,
Upon this joyful morn;
For Christ our Saviour Lord and King,
Is of a Virgin born.
    For Christ our Saviour Lord and King,
    Is of a Virgin born.
    Is of a Virgin born
For Christ our Saviour Lord and King,
Is of a Virgin born.

2. Born of a virgin meek and mild,
Laid in an oxen-stall.
Lo! there behold the heavenly child,
The Sov'ran Lord of all!

3. God's boundless mercies let's adore,
As shown to us on earth,
And gladly sing for evermore
At our Redeemer's birth.
