1. Hasten, loyal mortals, onward to the star,
See its beams of glory beckon from afar;
Past, the night of splendor, dawns the promised morn;
Come rejoicing, praises voicing, Christ is born.
Marching forward, following the star,
Shining, beaming, brightly gleaming
From the eastern skies afar;
Joyful praises singing all the way!
Swell the sweet undying song of Christmas Day.
2. March with joy and gladness, countless voices ring,
Angels high in glory worshipping the King;
Hail the Child of blessing, joy of all the earth;
Watch-fires gleaming, starlight beaming, greet His birth. [Refrain]
3. Hasten, loyal mortals, seek the manger shrine,
Bring your precious treasures to the Lord divine;
Soon the great Messiah shall your eyes behold;
Homage render, sweet and tender, love’s pure gold. [Refrain]
