A Child this day is born

Lyrics

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 Ange
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
