AGH 122

Verse 1

Good Christian men, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice!
Give ye heed to what we say:
News! News!
Jesus Christ is born today;
Ox and ass before him bow
And he is in the manger now.
Christ is born today;
Christ is born today!

Verse 2

Good Christian men, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice!
Now ye hear of endless bliss:
Joy! Joy!
Jesus Christ was born for this;
He hath oped the heavenly door,
And man is blest for evermore.
Christ was born for this;
Christ was born for this.

Verse 3

Good Christian men, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice!
Now ye need not fear the grave:
Peace! Peace!
Jesus Christ was born to save:
Calls you one, and calls you all,
To gain his everlasting hall.
Christ was born to save;
Christ was born to save!
