Original text and translations
Come hither, ye faithful,
Come, see in the manger,
The angels’ dread King!
To Bethlehem hasten with joyful accord!
O come ye, come hither, O come ye, come hither,
O come ye, come hither to worship the Lord.
True Son of the Father,
He comes from the skies;
To be born of a virgin
He doth not despise. Chorus
Hark! hark! to the angels!
All singing in in heav’n,
"To God in the highest
All glory be given!" Chorus
To Thee, then, O Jesu,
this day of Thy birth,
Be glory and honor
through heaven and earth
True Godhead incarnate! Omnipotent Word!
O come let us hasten, O come let us hasten,
O come let us hasten, to worship the Lord!
