2 Tell how He cometh; from nation to nation
The heart-cheering news let the earth echo round:
Shout the glad tidings, etc.
And sweet let the gladsome hosanna arise:

(d=104) All praise to Thee, e-ter - nal Lord, Who wore the garb of flesh and blood;
And chose a manger forThy throne, While worlds on worlds were Thine alone. A-men.
2 Once did the skies before Thee bow;
A virgin's arms contain Thee now;
Now listen for Thine infant voice. 3 A little child Thou art our guest,
That weary ones in Thee may rest;
4 Thou comest in the darksome night
To make us children of the light,
Like Thine own angels, round Thee shine. 5 All this for us Thy love hath done;
By this to Thee our love is won;

d=88) Hark! the her-ald an-gels sing Glo-ry to the new-born King! Peace on earth and
mer-cy mild, God and sin-ners rec-on-ciled! Joy-ful all ye na-tions, rise,
Join the tri-umph of the skies; With th' an-gel-ic host pro - claim Christ is born in
Beth-le-hem. Hark! the her-ald an-gels sing Glo-ry to the new-born King. A-men.
2 Christ, by highest heaven adored;
Christ, the everlasting Lord;

Born that man no more may die,

2 Then to the watchful shepherds it was told,
Who heard the angelic herald's voice: “ Behold,
This day is born a Saviour, Christ the Lord.” 3 He spake; and straightway the celestial choir
In hymns of joy, unknown before, conspire
Peace upon earth, and unto men good-will. 4 To Bethlehem straight the happy shepherds ran,
To see the wonder God had wrought for man: And found, with Joseph and the blessèd maid, Her Son, the Saviour, in a manger laid;
Amazed the wondrous story they proclaim,
The earliest heralds of the Saviour's name.
Our grateful voices to proclaim the joy;
Till man's first heavenly state again takes place.
To sing, redeemed, a glad triumphal song;
Of angels and of angel-men the King. Amen. JOHN BYROM 133 REGENT SQUARE 822.214.171.124

2 Shepherds, in the field abiding,
3 Sages, leave your contemplations, Watching o'er your Mocks by night, Brighter visions beam afar; God with man is now residing,
Seek the great Desire of nations,
Ye have seen His natal star;
Come and worship,
4 Saints before the altar bending,
Watching long in hope and fear,
Come and worship,
