Come, let us lift our hearts and voice,
    To him who reigns above,
Let all in songs of praise rejoice,
    And shout redeeming love.

Now may we cease to weep and mourn,
    Good news is come from heaven,
For unto us a child is born,
    To us a Son is given.

He is our Father and our Friend,
    The Prince of life and peace,
And since his mercy knows no end,
    His praise shall never cease.
