1. What mean this omen so strangely appearing?
What mean this omen so strangely appearing?
Such rare celestial glowing
Surely a wonder's showing,
Surely a wonder's showing.
2. Born is the ruler of earth and of Heaven,
Born is the ruler of earth and of Heaven;
Christ in a manger's lying,
All are to Bethlehem hieing,
All are to Bethlehem hieing.
3. Thanks for existence on His holy birthday,
Thanks for existence on His holy birthday;
Let us give adoration,
He's come for our salvation,
He's come for our salvation.
