Awake, ye nations of the earth

Awake, ye nations of the earth,
And celebrate the Savior’s birth;
With grateful hearts salute the morn,
On which the Savior, Christ was born.

The shining hosts, on wings of love,
Flew swiftly from the courts above;
With acclamation from the skies,
And seized the shepherds with surprise.

The heavenly choir around did sing:
This day is born the Savior-King.
They swell their notes to praise again,
Glory to God, goodwill to men.
