1. Behold what news we bring,
To you and all mankind
This day is born our heav'nly King
As you shall surely find
This day is born our heav'nly King
This day is born our heav'nly King,
As you shall surely find.

2. At Bethlehem arriv'd,
They sought him in the morn;
And there they found the holy place,
Where Jesus Christ was born.

3. All glory be to God,
Who doth His favour show!
Goodwill be unto all mankind,
And peace on earth below.
