Hither, ye faithful, haste with songs of triumph,
To Bethlehem haste, the Lord of life to meet;
To you this day is born a Prince and Saviour;
O come and let us worship at His feet.

O Jesus, for such wondrous condescension,
Our praises and rev'rence are an off'ring meet;
Now as the word made flesh and dwells among us;
O come and let us worship at His feet.
