Christmas Day

May you have much joy!

In quiet joy now sing with hearts aglow!
Our delight and pleasure lies in a manger;
Like sunshine is our treasure in the mother's lap.
Thou art Alpha and Omega

O tiny Jesus for thee I long alway;
Comfort my heart's blindness, O best of boys
With all Thy loving kindness, O prince of glory
Draw me after Thee

O love of the Father, O gentleness of the Son
Deeply were we stainèd Through our sins
But Thou for us hast gainèd The joy of heaven
O that we were there!

Where are joys in any place but there?
There are angels singing new songs
And there the bells are ringing in the king's court
O that we were there!
