Christians Awake! Salute The Happy Morn,
Whereon The Saviour Of Mankind Was Born;
Rise To Adore The Mystery Of Love
Which Hosts Of Angels Chanted From Above;
With Them The Joyful Tidings First Begun
Of God Incarnate And The Virgin’s Son.

Then To The Watchful Shepherds It Was Told,
Who Heard The Angelic Herald’s Voice ‘Behold,
I Bring Good Tidings Of A Saviour’s Birth
To You And All The Nations Upon Earth:
This Day Hath God Fulfilled His Promised Word,
This Day Is Born A Saviour, Christ The Lord.’

He Spake; And Straightway The Celestial Choir
In Hymns Of Joy Unknown Before Conspire;
High Praise Of God’s Redeeming Love They Sang,
And Heaven’s Whole Orb With Hallelujahs Rang;
God’s Highest Glory Was Their Anthem Still,
‘On Earth Be Peace, And Unto Men Goodwill.’

O May We Keep And Ponder In Our Mind
God’s Wondrous Love In Saving Lost Mankind;
Trace We The Babe Who Hath Retrieved Our Loss,
From His Poor Manger To His Bitter Cross;
Tread In His Steps, Assisted By His Grace,
Till Man’s First Heavenly State Again Takes Place.

Then May We Hope, The Angelic Hosts Among,
To Sing, Redeemed, A Glad Triumphant Song:
He That Was Born Upon This Joyful Day
Around Us All His Glory Shall Display;
Saved By His Love, Incessant We Shall Sing
Eternal Praise To Heaven’s Almighty King
