1On 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 Savior bear;
Mary ever pure, Mary ever pure.
2These good news an Angel told
To the shepherds by their fold,
Told them of the Savior’s Birth,
Told them of the joy for earth.
3Born is now Emmanuel,
He, announced by Gabriel,
He, Whom Prophets old attest,
Cometh from His Father’s Breast.
4Born today is Christ the Child,
Born of Mary undefiled,
Born the King and Lord we own;
Glory by to God alone.
