1Come hither, ye faithful,
Triumphantly sing!
Come, see in the manger
The angels’ dread King!
To Bethlehem hasten
With joyful accord!
O come ye, come hither,
O come ye, come hither,
O come ye, come hither
To worship the Lord.
2True Son of the Father,
He comes from the skies;
To be born of a Virgin
He doth not despise,
To Bethlehem hasten
With joyful accord!
O come ye, come hither,
O come ye, come hither,
O come ye, come hither
To worship the Lord.
3Hark! Hark to the angels!
All singing in heaven,
“To God in the highest
All glory be given!”
To Bethlehem hasten
With joyful accord!
O come ye, come hither,
O come ye, come hither,
O come ye, come hither
To worship the Lord.
4To Thee, then, O Jesu,
This day of Thy birth,
Be glory and honor
Through heaven and earth;
True Godhead incarnate!
Omnipotent Word!
O come, let us hasten,
O come, let us hasten,
O come, let us hasten
To worship the Lord! Amen.
Luke2:15And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
