Awake, my soul, awake, my tongue,
My glory wake and sing,
And celebrate the holy birth,
The birth of Israel's King!
O happy night that brought forth light,
Which makes the blind to see,
The Dayspring from on high came down
To cheer and visit thee.
The careful shepherds with their flocks
Were watching for the morn,
But better news from Heav'n was brought;
Your Savior now is born!
In Bethlehem the Infant lies,
Within a place obscure,
Your Savior's come, O sing God's praise!
O sing His praise fore'er.
A Babe Is Born in Bethlehem
A Babe is born in Bethlehem, Bethlehem,
Therefore rejoice Jerusalem,
Within a manger He doth lie, He doth lie,
Whose throne is set above the sky.
Stillness was all the manger round, manger round,
The creature its Creator found.
The wise men came, led by the star, by the star,
Gold, myrrh, and incense brought from far.
His mother is the virgin mild, virgin mild,
And He the Father's only Child.
The serpent's wound He beareth not, beareth not,
Yet takes our blood, and shares our lot,
Our human flesh He enters in, enters in,
But bears no single taint of sin.
To fallen man Himself He bowed, self He bowed,
That He might lift us up to God.
On this most blessèd Jubilee, Jubilee,
All glory be, O God, to Thee.
O Holy Three, we Thee adore, Thee adore,
This day, henceforth, forevermore.
