O Come All Ye Faithful

by Michael RichComment — Updated August 5, 2023


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! 

O come let us adore Him, 
O come let us adore Him, 
O come let us adore Him, 
Christ the Lord! 

Sing, choirs of angels, 
Sing in exultation, 
O sing, all ye citizens of heaven above! 
"Glory to God, 
In the highest!" 


God of God, 
Light of Light, 
Lo! He abhors not the Virgin's womb; 
Very God, 
Begotten, not created. 


See how the shepherds 
Summoned to His cradle, 
Leaving their flocks, draw nigh to gaze! 
We, too, will thither 
Bend our hearts' oblations. 


Lo, star-led chieftains, 
Magi, Christ adoring, 
Offer Him incense, gold and myrrh; 
We to the Christ-child 
Bring our hearts' oblations


Child, for us sinners, 
Poor and in the manger, 
Fain we embrace Thee with love and awe; 
Who would not love Thee, 
Loving us so dearly?


Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, 
Born this happy morning, 
Jesus, to Thee be all glory given; 
Word of the Father, 
Now in flesh appearing!
