Lyrics
Verse 1
See amid the winter's snow, 
Born for us on earth below, 
See the tender Lamb appears, 
Promised from eternal years. 
 
Chorus
Hail, thou ever-blessed morn! 
Hail, redemption's happy dawn! 
Sing through all Jerusalem, 
Christ is born in Bethlehem. 
 
Verse 2
Lo, within a manger lies 
He who built the starry skies; 
He who throned in height sublime 
Sits amid the cherubim. 
 
Chorus
Hail, thou ever-blessed morn! 
Hail, redemption's happy dawn! 
Sing through all Jerusalem, 
Christ is born in Bethlehem. 
 
Verse 3
Say, ye holy shepherds, say 
What your joyful news today; 
Wherefore have ye left your sheep 
On the lonely mountain steep? 
 
Chorus
Hail, thou ever-blessed morn! 
Hail, redemption's happy dawn! 
Sing through all Jerusalem, 
Christ is born in Bethlehem. 
 
Verse 4
"As we watched at dead of night, 
Lo, we saw a wondrous light; 
Angels singing peace on earth 
Told us of the Saviour's birth". 
 
Chorus
Hail, thou ever-blessed morn! 
Hail, redemption's happy dawn! 
Sing through all Jerusalem, 
Christ is born in Bethlehem. 
 
Verse 5
Sacred infant, all divine, 
What a tender love was thine, 
Thus to come from highest bliss 
Down to such a world as this. 
 
Chorus
Hail, thou ever-blessed morn! 
Hail, redemption's happy dawn! 
Sing through all Jerusalem, 
Christ is born in Bethlehem. 
 
Verse 6
Teach, O teach us , Holy Child, 
By Thy Face so meek and mild, 
Teach us to resemble Thee, 
In Thy Sweet humility! 
 
Chorus
Hail, thou ever-blessed morn! 
Hail, redemption's happy dawn! 
Sing through all Jerusalem, 
Christ is born in Bethlehem.
