O Come, All Ye Faithful

Even as an atheist, I loved Christmas Carols (singing them) and Carol Concerts. As a Christian, carols obviously mean that much more to me. I especially love the traditional Christmas carols. This is one I got to sing today and that I love.

O Come, All Ye Faithful

O come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him,
Born 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.

God of God,
Light of Light,
Lo! he abhors not the Virgin's womb:
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.

See how the shepherds,
Summoned to his cradle,
Leaving their flocks, draw nigh to gaze;
We too will thither
Bend our joyful footsteps;

O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O Come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.

Child, for us sinners
Poor and in the manger,
We would embrace thee, with love and awe;
Who would not live thee,
Loving us so dearly?

O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O Come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.

Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above;
Glory to God
In the highest;

O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O Come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.

Yea, Lord, we greet thee,
Born this happy morning;
Jesus, to thee be glory given;
Word of the Father,
Now in flesh appearing;

O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O Come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.
