170. O Come, All Ye Faithful

1 O come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, 0 come ye to Bethlehem!
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of angels!
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ, the Lord!

2 O sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation!
O sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
Glory to God, all
Glory in the highest!
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ, the Lord!

3 Yea, Lord, we greet Thee,
Born this happy morning,
O Jesus, to Thee be all glory given;
Word of the Father,
Now in flesh appearing!
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ, the Lord!
