1 O come, Christians, wonder
be thankful, and ponder
the birth of our saviour and Lord:
for we who were sighing,
and sinning, and dying,
in Jesus are fully restored.

   Gloria in excelsis Deo!
   Glory in the highest! Jesus is born!
   Gloria in excelsis Deo!
   Glory in the highest! Jesus Christ is born!

2 So lift high your voices,
as heaven rejoices
to tell of the babe in the hay:
this Jesus the holy,
the poor, and the lowly
we praise him and serve him today!

3 Let sister and brother
speak peace to each other,
and brother and sister agree:
for love is our story
to Jesus the glory
both now and for ever shall be.
