165. Good Christian Men, Rejoice

1 Good Christian men, rejoice
With heart, and soul, and voice;
Give ye heed to what we say:
News! news! Jesus Christ is born today:
Ox and ass before Him bow,
And He is in the manger now.
Christ is born today!
Christ is born today!

2 Good Christian men, rejoice
With heart, and soul, and voice;
Now ye hear of endless bliss;
Joy! joy! Jesus Christ was born for this!
He has oped the heavenly door,
And man is blessed evermore.
Christ was born for this!
Christ was born for this!

3 Good Christian men, rejoice
With heart, and soul, and voice;
Now ye need not fear the grave:
Peace! peace! Jesus Christ was born to save!
Calls you one and calls you all,
To gain His everlasting hall.
Christ was born to save!
Christ was born to save!

Amen.
