Him we sing, whose wondrous story
Heaven and earth and seas proclaim,
Ruler of the realms of glory,
How from heaven to earth. He came ;
Holy Jesus, who was born
Early on the Christmas morn.
What though sun and moon adore Him
While the rolling ages move,
Yet a mortal maiden bore Him
Graced by heaven's peculiar love :
Lo, within a manger lies
He who built the starry skies.
Hark the angelic host rejoices,
Sweetly singing in the skies,
May our thankful hearts and voices
With their hymns of praise arise !
Hail the ever-blessed morn,
Hail redemption's happy dawn
