O Come, All Ye Faithful

words by John F. Wade, c1743
verses 1-3 & 6 translated from Latin to English by Frederick Oakeley, 1841
verses 4 & 5 translated by William T. Brooke (1848-1917)

  1. 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;

    Refrain:
    O come, let us adore Him,
    O come, let us adore Him,
    O come, let us adore Him,
    Christ the Lord.

  2. True God of true God, Light from Light Eternal,
    Lo, He shuns not the Virgin's womb;
    Son of the Father, begotten, not created;

  3. Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation;
    O sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
    Glory to God, all glory in the highest;

  4. See how the shepherds, summoned to His cradle,
    Leaving their flocks, draw nigh to gaze;
    We too will thither bend our joyful footsteps;

  5. Lo! star led chieftains, Magi, Christ adoring,
    Offer Him incense, gold, and myrrh;
    We to the Christ Child bring our hearts' oblations.

  6. Child, for us sinners poor and in the manger,
    We would embrace Thee, with love and awe;
    Who would not love Thee, loving us so dearly?

  7. Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning;
    Jesus, to Thee be glory given;
    Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing.
