On the Nativity
A Translation from the Adeste Fideles

1 Oh, come, all ye faithful, joyful triumph raising, 
Oh, come ye to Bethlehem, His praise record: 
Behold the Son, the King of angels, praise Him! 
Oh, come, let us adore Him; oh, come, let us adore Him;
Oh, come, let us adore Him; Christ our Lord. 

2 O Thou light of light, of all things the Creator; 
Hail, King of glory, hail, incarnate Word! 
Glorious Immanuel, now in mortal nature; 
Oh, come, let us adore Him; Christ our Lord. 

3 Oh, come, all ye faithful, choirs of heav'n attending;
Jesus is born, by earth and heav'n ador'd: 
Glorious Messiah, mighty God, descending; 
Oh, come, let us adore Him, Christ our Lord. 

4 Oh, shout Hallelujah, praise the Lord of heaven!
On earth be peace, good will to man record:
Glory To God be in the highest given;
Oh, come, let us adore Him, Christ our Lord.
