155. Welcome the Child of Light

Good people of God, rejoice and sing.

Prepare to meet your newborn king.

The waiting is over, Messiah has come.

Open your hearts and receive God’s son.

 

Welcome the Child of Light,

the bright morning star that illumines the night,.

the hope of the ages, the Savior of all.

Welcome the Child of Light.

Welcome the Child of Light.

 

This, this is Christ the King,

whom shepherds guard and angels sing.

Haste, haste to bring him laud,

the babe, the son of Mary.

 

Sheperds were watching their flock by night

When lo, there appeared a wondrous sight.

Angels announced the glorious birth,

good will to all and peace on earth.

 

Gloria in excelsis deo!

Gloria in excelsis deo!

 

Welcome the Child of Light,

the bright morning star that illumines the night,.

the hope of the ages, the Savior of all.

Welcome the Child of Light. Welcome the Child of Light.

Welcome the Child of Light!
