Is.49:13a  Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains:
Luke 2:11  For unto us is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Matt. 21:19b  Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.
To God on high be glory, and peace on earth to men.

O come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold Him
Born, the King of Angels:
O come, let us adore Him
Christ the Lord.
