1 Come and hear the joyful singing,
Alleluia, gloria,
set the bells of heaven ringing,
alleluia, gloria,
God the Lord has shown us favour
alleluia, gloria,
Christ is born to be our saviour.
alleluia, gloria!

2 Angels of his birth are telling,
Alleluia, gloria,
prince of peace all powers excelling;
alleluia, gloria,
death and hell cannot defeat him:
alleluia, gloria,
go to Bethlehem and greet him.
alleluia, gloria!

3 Choir and people, shout in wonder,
Alleluia, gloria,
let the merry organ thunder;
alleluia, gloria,
thank our God for love amazing,
alleluia, gloria,
Father, Son and Spirit praising.
alleluia, gloria!
