1. Descend from heaven, you angels bright - Alleluia; lullaby!
to greet with songs this holy night - Alleluia, alleluia!
and tell of Jesus, Mary's Son.

2. Come, greet our world with tuneful voice - Alleluia; lullaby!
with high celestial praise rejoice - Alleluia, alleluia!
and tell of Jesus, Mary's Son.

3. So let your cheerful music sound - Alleluia; lullaby!
until the very skies resound - Alleluia, alleluia!
in praise of Jesus, Mary's Son.

4. Sing, 'Peace, goodwill from shore to shore - Alleluia; lullaby!
on high sing glory evermore' - Alleluia, alleluia!
in praise of Jesus, Mary's Son.
