Happy Christmas! Let us sing,
Celebrate the Saviour's birth!
Essence of the Unseen God
Gloriously revealed on earth,
Blazing into time and space,
Dazzling star of hope and grace!

Jesus born in Bethlehem,
Far away and long ago,
Ever-present in our hearts
Now your gentle beauty show,
Every weary life refresh,
Mighty Word in feeble flesh!

With the shepherds may we know
With the Wise Men may we see
Yearning, universal love
Cradled in simplicity,
Born that misery might cease,
Lord of life and Prince of Peace!

Through the glib, commercial blare
Of these overcrowded days
Let the joyful tidings sound
With authentic Gospel praise!
Mary's child, once born to bless,
Seal our Christmas happiness.
