Right: translated by Frederick Oakeley, 1841

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, 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, 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, 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, Christ the Lord!

or O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem,
Come and behold him, born the king of angels:
Refrain:
|: O come let us adore him, :|
O come let us adore him, Christ the lord!

2. God of God, Light of light
Lo, he abhors not the virgins womb
Very God, begotten, not created
Refrain:

3. Yea, Lord we great thee, born this happy morning
Jesus, to thee be glory given
Word of the father, now in flesh appearing.
Refrain:

4. Sing choirs of angels, sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of Heaven above
Glory to God in the highest:
Refrain:
