“O Come, All Ye Faithful”
O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him born the King of Angels:
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.
Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of Heaven above;
Glory to God, in the highest;
3. Yea, Lord, we greet thee, born this happy morning;
Jesus, to thee be all glory giv’n
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing!
4. Adeste fideles læti triumphantes,
Venite, venite in Bethlehem.
Natum videte,
Regem angelorum;
Venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus,
