The Birth of Jesus Christ

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 heared 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 fufilled His promised word,
This day is born a Saviour, Christ the Lord

He spake; and straightway the celestial chior
In hymns of joy, unknown before, conspire,
The praises of redeeming love they sang,
And heaven’s whole orb with hallelujahs rang;
God’s highest glory was their anthem still,
Peace upon earth, 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 the poor manger to the bitter Cross;
Tread in His steps, assisted by His grace,
Till man’s first heavenly state again takes place.
