On this joyous Christmas morn,
Hallelujah!

Born this day to save us.

God has sent Him as foretold,
Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!
Realms of heaven He forsook,
Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!
God has saved us through His Son,
Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!
Keep us from all harm and ill,
Hallelujah!

To our souls Thy comfort send,
