Christians, Awake, Salute The Happy Morn
Whereon The Saviour Of The World 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 Spoke, And Straightaway The Celestial Choir
In Hymns Of Joy, Unknown Before, Conspire
The Praises Of Redeeming Love They Sang
And Heaven’s Whole Orb With Alleluias Rang
God’s Highest Glory Was Their Anthem Still
Peace Upon Earth And Unto Men Goodwill

To Bethlehem Straight The Shepherds Ran
To See The Wonder God Had Wrought For Man
And Found, With Joseph And The Blessed Maid
Her Son, The Saviour, In A Manger Laid
Then To Their Flocks, Still Praising God, Return,
And Their Glad Hearts With Holy Rapture Burn.

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
Treading His Steps, Assisted By His Grace
Till Man’s First Heavenly State Again Takes Place

Then May We Hope, The Angelic Thrones Among
To Sing, Redeemed, A Glad Triumphal 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.
