A Child This Day

A Child this day is born,
A Child of high renown;
Most worthy of a sceptre,
A sceptre and a crown.

Glad tidings to all men,
Glad tidings sing we may,
Because the King of Kings,
Was born on Christmas Day

These tidings shepherds heard
While watching o’er their fold;
Twas by an Angel unto them
That night revealed and told.

Glad tidings to all men,
Glad tidings sing we may,
Because the King of Kings,
Was born on Christmas Day

To whom the Angel spoke,
Saying, "Be not afraid;"
Be glad, poor silly shepherds --
Why are you so dismayed?

Glad tidings to all men,
Glad tidings sing we may,
Because the King of Kings,
Was born on Christmas Day

"For lo! I bring you tidings
Of gladness and of mirth,
Which cometh to all people by
This holy Infant's birth"

Glad tidings to all men,
Glad tidings sing we may,
Because the King of Kings,
Was born on Christmas Day

Then was there with the Angel
An host incontinent
Of heavenly bright soldiers,
All from the highest sent.

Glad tidings to all men,
Glad tidings sing we may,
Because the King of Kings,
Was born on Christmas Day

They praised the Lord our God,
And our celestial King:
All glory be in Paradise,
This heavenly host do sing.

Glad tidings to all men,
Glad tidings sing we may,
Because the King of Kings,
Was born on Christmas Day

And as the Angel told them,
So to them did appear;
They found the young Child, Jesus Christ
With Mary, his mother dear:

Glad tidings to all men,
Glad tidings sing we may,
Because the King of Kings,
Was born on Christmas Day

All glory be to God,
That sitteth still on high
with praises and with triumph great,
And joyful melody.

Glad tidings to all men,
Glad tidings sing we may,
Because the King of Kings,
Was born on Christmas Day
