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
