1.
Come hither, ye faithful,
Triumphantly sing!
Come, see in the manger,
The angels’ dread King!

Chorus:
To Bethlehem hasten with joyful accord!
O come ye, come hither, O come ye, come hither,
O come ye, come hither to worship the Lord.

2.
True Son of the Father,
He comes from the skies;
To be born of a virgin
He doth not despise. Chorus

3.
Hark! hark! to the angels!
All singing in in heav’n,
"To God in the highest
All glory be given!" Chorus

4.
To Thee, then, O Jesu,
this day of Thy birth,
Be glory and honor
through heaven and earth

5.
True Godhead incarnate! Omnipotent Word!
O come let us hasten, O come let us hasten,
O come let us hasten, to worship the Lord!
