Draw Nigh, All Ye Faithful  (1868) 
Anonymous, translated by John Mason Neale and John Keble

 
 1. Draw nigh, all ye faithful, joyous and triumphant,
And greet ye at Bethlehem the Babe, the Word!
In lowly manger lies the King of Angels!

O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord!

2. God of God Almighty,Light of Light Eternal,
Thou hast not, O Christ, the Virgin's womb abhorred:
Very God of Very God, begotten not created!

O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord!

3. Shout Alleluia, all ye choirs of Angels,
Rejoice, heavenly citizens, with glad accord:
Glory to God! To God on high be glory,

O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord!

4. Here, Lord! We would greet Thee, born this happy morning,
O Jesu! For ever be Thy Name adored,
Word of the Father, now for us Incarnate!

O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord! Amen.
