A Child This Day Is Born
Lyrics

A Child this day is born,
A Child of high renown;
Most worthy of a scepter,
A scepter and a crown.

Chorus:

Glad tidings to all men,
Glad tidings sing we may,
Because the King of Kings,
Was born on Christmas Day

These tidings shepherds heard
While watching o’er their fold;
Twas by an Angel unto them
That night revealed and told.

Chorus

To whom the Angel spoke,
Saying, “Be not afraid;”
Be glad, poor silly shepherds –
Why are you so dismayed?

Chorus

“For lo! I bring you tidings
Of gladness and of mirth,
Which cometh to all people by
This holy Infant’s birth”

Chorus

Then was there with the Angel
An host incontinent
Of heavenly bright soldiers,
All from the highest sent.

Chorus

They praised the Lord our God,
And our celestial King:
All glory be in Paradise,
This heavenly host do sing.

Chorus

And as the Angel told them,
So to them did appear;
They found the young Child, Jesus Christ
With Mary, his mother dear:

Chorus

All glory be to God,
That sitteth still on high
with praises and with triumph great,
And joyful melody.

Chorus
