If Angels Sung A Saviors Birth


If angels sang our Savior’s birth,
On that most blessed morn,
Then let us imitate their mirth,
Now He again is born.

Refrain:
Surrexit Christus hodie,
Surrexit pro nobis;
Surrexit Christus hodie,
Gloria, Jesu Domino!

Grieve not, vain man, who mortal art,
That thou to earth must fall;
It was His portion, ’twas His part
Of Him who made us all. [Refrain]

Himself He humbled to the grave,
Made flesh like us to show,
That we as certainly shall have,
A resurrection too. [Refrain]

Then with perpetual hymns let Christ,
Who from the dead was raised,
With Father and the Holy Ghost,
Eternally be praised. [Refrain]
