English Hymn 44
O what peace and what rejoicing
Brings this blessed Christmas tide
We see age and youth together
In good will and love abide
Praise to God let us be singing
And peace on earth,
good will to men be bringing;
For unto us the Saviour is born
This glorious Christmas morn.
Candles may be brightly burning,
Happy all with Christmas gifts,
But the love from God proceeding
Doth the hearts of all uplift.
All to short the joys of Christmas
Where the Saviour is unknown;
Lasting joy receive we only
Thro’ the Prince of Peace alone.
