Hymn: Ye Faithful, with Gladness

Ye faithful, with gladness,
Banishing all sadness,
O Come ye, O come ye to
Bethlehem! See to us given
Christ, the King of Heaven!

While angels hover o’er Him,
And shepherds kneel before Him
O Come, let us adore Him,
Lord And King.

Dear Mary, His Mother,
Give to us as Brother
The Lord whom the angels are
Worshipping: God the eternal
Light of Light supernal!

While angels hover o’er Him,
And shepherds kneel before Him
O Come, let us adore Him,
Lord And King.

Again sounding o’er us,
Let the Angel chorus
The anthem of gladness and
Triumph sing: “Glory be given
To the Lord of Heaven!”

While angels hover o’er Him,
And shepherds kneel before Him
O Come, let us adore Him,
Lord And King.

Our voices no blending
With their songs unending,
All-joyful, dear Jesus, Thy
Glory sing, Be our endeavor
Thus to praise Thee ever!
