Verse 1
The happy day at last has dawned
Long awaited by all kindred
When the promised Saviour appears
Here on earth in human form.

Verse 2
Shepherds in the fields abiding
Watching over their flocks by night
First e'er, the glad tidings were told
Glad tidings of the Saviour's birth

Verse 3
Angel's God's ministering spirits
Who came in shining white app'rel
Brought to them the blessed message,
The true, glad tidings of great joy.

Verse 4
A mighty dread had seized their mind
Because of this strange sight they saw
''Fear not'' was the comforting words
That came from the angelic lips.

Verse 5
Christ the Saviour is born today
Yet Christ the Lord on earth is He
In David's city is He born
In a humble manger forlon.

Verse 6
`All glory be to God on high`
Will be the chorus by all clime
For his tender and endless love
That to a world in need brought peace
