1 Lift your heart and raise your voice,
faithful people, come, rejoice:
grace and power are shown on earth
in the saviour's holy birth.

2 Mortals, hear what angels say;
shepherds, quickly make your way,
finding truth in lowly guise,
wisdom to confound the wise.

3 Here he lies, the Lord of all;
nature's king in cattle-stall,
God of heaven to earth come down
cross for throne and thorn for crown.

4 Lift your hearts and voices high:
then shall glory fill the sky
Christ shall come and not be long,
earth shall sing the angels' song:
