1. Now to the Child of Bethlehem,
And to the holy night;
Of kings who came with many a gem,
A joyous song indite!
Sing of the star that gladdened then
The wondering Magi’s sight;
And of descending angels when
Wide swung the gates of light!
Now to the Child of Bethlehem,
And to the holy night;
Of kings who came with many a gem,
A joyous song indite!

2. Sing of the message that they brought,
The news of peace and joy;
Of where the faithful shepherds sought
The royal infant Boy!
Sing how they found His cradle bed,
His lowly natal place;
A golden halo round His head,
And beaming from His face!
Sing of the message that they brought,
The news of peace and joy;
Of where the faithful shepherds sought
The royal infant Boy!

3. Sing of the reign, that then began,
Of love instead of strife;
Of men reclaimed from error’s ban,
And walking in new life.
All glory be to God on high,
Praise Him for Jesus’ birth!
Ring out, O song! o’er earth and sky
Peace and goodwill on earth!
Sing of the reign, that then began,
Of love instead of strife;
Of men reclaimed from error’s ban,
And walking in new life.
