Oh, Come! All Ye Faithful! (Caswall)

For other English-language translations of this work, see Adeste Fideles.

1. Oh, come! all ye faithful!
Triumphantly sing!
Come, see in the Manger
The Angels' dread King!
    To Bethlehem hasten!
    With joyful accord;
    Oh, hasten! oh, hasten!
    To worship the Lord.

2. True Son of the Father!
He comes from the skies;
The womb of the Virgin
He doth not despise;
    To Bethlehem hasten, &c.

3. Hark! to the Angels!
All singing in Heaven,
"To God in the highest
All glory be given."
    To Bethlehem hasten &c.

4. To Thee, then, O Jesu!
This day of thy birth,
Be glory and honor
Through Heaven and earth;
    True Godhead Incarnate!
    Omnipotent Word!
    Oh, hasten! oh, hasten!
    To worship the Lord.
