Awake, arise, rejoice and sing,
To see the blessed morn,
Awake, awake, lift up your voice,
Our Saviour Christ is born.
Oh happy night that brought forth light,
Which made the blind to see,
The dayspring from the high came down,
To cheer and visit thee.
Come let us join with angels then,
Our God to glorify,
Peace be on earth, good-will to men,
Glory be to God on high.
