Come hither, ye faithful

Full Text

1 Oh, come all ye faithful, triumphantly sing:
Come, see in the manger our Savior and King!
To Bethlehem hasten with joyful accord:
Oh, come, let us adore Him,
Oh, come, let us adore Him,
Oh, come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord!

2 True 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;
Oh, come, let us adore Him,
Oh, come, let us adore Him,
Oh, come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord!

3 Hark, hark to the angels all singing in heaven,
"To God in the Highest all glory be given!"
To Bethlehem hasten, with joyful accord;
Oh, come, let us adore Him,
Oh, come, let us adore Him,
Oh, come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord!

4 To Thee, then, O Jesus, this day of Thy birth,
Be glory and honor through heaven and earth.
True Godhead incarnate, omnipotent Word!
Oh, come, let us adore Him,
Oh, come, let us adore Him,
Oh, come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord!

Amen.
