1. Never shone a light so fair,
Never fell so sweet a song,
As the chorus in the air,
Chanted by the angel-throng;
Ev'ry star took up the story,
"Christ has come, the Prince of glory,
Come in humble hearts to dwell,
God with us, God with us,
God with us, Immanuel."

2. Still that Jubilee of song
Breaks upon the rising morn;
While the anthem rolls along,
Floods of light the earth adorn;
Old and young take up the story,
"Christ has come, the Prince of glory,
Come in humble hearts to dwell,
God with us, God with us,
God with us, Immanuel."

3. Welcome now the blessed day
When we praise the Lord our King;
When we meet to praise and pray,
And His love with gladness sing;
Let the world take up the story,
"Christ has come, the Prince of glory,
Come in humble hearts to dwell,
God with us, God with us,
God with us, Immanuel."
