Behold, I bring you tidings,
Good tidings of great joy,
Which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born a Savior,
Who is Christ the Lord.

Break forth in songs,
Rejoice, ye sons of men.
Break forth in songs,
Sing together, ye redeemed of the Lord.

Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace,
Good will towards men.
