1. Christ is born! Christ is Born!
Ring the news on Christmas morn;
Maryís Son! Maryís Son!
"Come and laud Him, evíry one.

"Glory unto God on high,"
Joyful Angels make reply.

2. Lo! The Star! Lo! The Star!
Guides the wise men from afar.
Now it stays! Now it stays!
In the manger offer praise: Refrain

3. Shepherds go! Shepherds go!
Bethlehem shall wonders show;
You shall find! You shall find!
Maryís Babe, Lord of mankind: Refrain

4. Peace on earth! Peace on earth!
Heralds in the Virgin birth.
Give God thanks! Give God thanks!
Now we join the heavenly ranks: Refrain
