On the birthday of the Lord




On the birthday of the Lord
Angels joy in glad accord,
And they sing in sweetest tone,
|:Glory be to God alone.:|

God is born of maiden fair,
Mary doth the Savior bear;
Mary ever pure, Mary ever pure.



These good news an angel told
To the shepherds by their fold,
Told them of the Saviorís birth,
|:Told them of the joy for earth.:|

God is born of maiden fair,
Mary doth the Savior bear;
Mary ever pure, Mary ever pure.



Born is now Emmanuel,
He, announced by Gabriel,
He, Whom prophets old attest,
|:Cometh from His Fatherís breast.:|

God is born of maiden fair,
Mary doth the Savior bear;
Mary ever pure, Mary ever pure.



Born today is Christ the Child,
Born of Mary undefiled,
Born the King and Lord we own;
|:Glory be to God alone.:|

God is born of maiden fair,
Mary doth the Savior bear;
Mary ever pure, Mary ever pure.
