The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

Come, Hear the Wonderful Tidings

Authorship Unknown

Come, Hear the wonderful tidings we bring
Bethlehem cradles a heavenly King!
Come sing His Story
Come sing His glory
Come sing His Story
Come sing His glory
Jesus is born

1. Mary, the sweet Virgin Mother so fine
Tenderly comforts the infant divine
Her face is glowing with love o'er flowing
Her face is glowing with love o'er flowing
For her dear Son

2. Angels from Heaven are singing His praise
Shepherds in wonder and joy on Him gaze;
Bringing Him honor, presents they offer,
Bringing Him honor, presents they offer,
Jesus their Lord.

3. Over the desert shines God's radiant star
Guiding the kings who come journeying far
Here to discover, in lowly manger,
Here to discover, in lowly manger,
Wisdom divine.

4. Prophecy now is fulfilled in this hour;
Darkness is scattered by Heaven's great pow'r
God's glory beaming, o'er Jesus streaming
God's glory beaming, o'er Jesus streaming,
Shines through the night.
