Christ Is Born And Heaven Rejoices


Christ is born, and Heaven rejoices,
Judah’s plain is bathed in light;
Thousand, thousand harps and voices
Break the silence of the night.

Refrain:
Glory in the highest, glory,
Peace on earth, good will to men.

Christ is born, the Lord’s Anointed,
Leaves the heavenly world a while,
Enters on the work appointed,
God and man to reconcile. [Refrain]

To the lost He brings salvation,
Freedom to the captive slave;
Peace amid death’s desolation,
Victory o’er the boasting grave. [Refrain]

Christ is born, O wondrous story!
Lord of life, yet born to die;
Sorrow’s child, yet King of Glory:
Born to rule and reign on high. [Refrain]

Royal babe, though few enthrone Him,
Few their grateful offerings bring;
All the tribes of earth shall own Him
Prince of Peace, creation’s king. [Refrain]
