Welcome Day Of Blessing

Welcome, day of blessing!
Peace and joy thy moments bring,
Welcome, day of gladness!
Round the earth may thy praises ring.

This day is the promise seal’d,
This day is the love of God reveal’d,
Over Bethlehem, the Angel voices sing,
The birthday of our King.

Carol, men and maidens!
With the angels sound His praise,
Carol, youth and children,
In full chorus your voices raise. [Refrain]

Onward, bear His standard!
Spread the triumphs of His name!
Upward, lift the banner,
And the forces of evil shame. [Refrain]

Crown Him, then ye people
Crown the Saviour, Prince of Peace!
Crown Him, O ye nations
For His kingdom shall still increase! [Refrain]
