1. On the birthday of the Lord
Angels joy in glad accord,
And they sing in sweetest tone
Glory be to God alone.
God is born of maiden fair, Mary doth the Saviour bear; Mary ever pure.

2. Born is now Emmanuel,
He, announced by Gabriel,
He, Whom Prophets old attest,
Cometh from His Father’s Breast.
God is born…

3. This good news an Angel told
To the shepherds by their fold,
Told them of the Saviour’s Birth,
Told them of the joy for earth.
God is born…

4. Born today is Christ the child,
Born of Mary undefiled,
Born the King and Lord we own;
Glory by to God alone.
God is born…

5. See the wise their gifts unfold,
Incense, myrrh, and royal gold;
Kneeling to the eternal King,
Glory to our God! they sing.
God is born…

6. Let the Church rejoice
Regularly with glory:
Let it give praise to the Most High:
Glory to God alone. [non-metrical]
