  • CPDL #24094:        (Sibelius 6)
Editor: Edmund Gooch (submitted 2011-08-04).   Score information: A4, 2 pages, 37 kB   Copyright: Public Domain
Edition notes: The alto part is printed in the source in the treble clef, an octave above sounding pitch. The first verse and chorus only are underlaid in the source, with subsequent verses printed after the music: these have been underlaid editorially. The soprano G on beat 1 of bar 2, and the alto B and tenor G# on beat 1 of bar 23, are all printed as small crotchet grace notes in the source, and have here been written out in full. The initial upbeat bar is blank (without either notes or rests) in the instrumental bass part: a crotchet D, doubling the vocal bass, has been added editorially in the present edition.

Awake, ye drowsy mortals all,
Hear what the angels say;
And listen to the heav'nly call:
A saviour's born today.
Then let us all unite our voice,
And sweet hosannas sing;
In God our saviour all rejoice,
The new-born heav'nly King.

A Saviour's born, by saints foretold,
Born of a spotless maid;
Foreshewn by prophecies of old,
And in a manger laid.
Then let us all unite our voice,
And sweet hosannas sing;
In God our saviour all rejoice,
The new-born heav'nly King.

See how the heav'nly host above
Attend him at his birth:
The God of mercy and of love
Now dwells with men on earth.
Then let us all unite our voice,
And sweet hosannas sing;
In God our saviour all rejoice,
The new-born heav'nly King.

Behold the condescending love
Of our Redeemer dear,
In leaving his blest throne above,
To dwell with sinners here.
Then let us all unite our voice,
And sweet hosannas sing;
In God our saviour all rejoice,
The new-born heav'nly King.
