Christmas Carols in Prose #2: Oh, Come, All Ye Faithful

All you faithful, come joyfully and triumphantly! Come, come to Bethlehem! Come and behold him who was born: the king of angels.

Choirs of angels, sing in exultation. All heaven’s citizens, sing! Glory in the highest to God.

Yes, we greet you, Lord born this happy morning—Jesus, son of the Father, now appearing in flesh. Let all glory be given to you.

Come, let’s adore him—Christ the Lord.
