Hymn/Song Information

FOR CHRISTMAS




Sleep, weary world, and take thy rest,
Thy countless eye-lids close;
Shut all thy cares within thy breast,
For once in peace repose.


Wake slumbering world; a midnight cry
Comes with Almighty breath;
Wake; thy redemption draweth nigh,
Rise from the dust of death.


Yon star, those angels, shepherds, kings,
A birth from heaven proclaim;
The Son of God salvation brings,
Emanuel is his name.


Gather thy children from afar,
Of climes and tongues unknown;
Show them the stable and the star,
Christís manger and his throne.


There, with the angels, loud and sweet,
All hearts, all voices blend;
There, with the shepherds, at his feet,
All knees, all nations bend.


There, with the wise men from the east,
Sinners their offerings bring;
Each at this altar be a priest,
And every priest a king.


For he shall wash them in his blood,
Shall with his robes array,
And make them kings and priests to God:
Lord Jesus, speed the day.
