1. Sing we now of Christmas, Noel, sing we here! Sing our grateful praises to the Babe so dear.
Refrain: Sing we Noel, the King is born, Noel! Sing we now of Christmas, Noel, and sing we here!
2. From the Eastern kingdoms Come the wise men far. Bearing ancient treasure, following yonder star.
3. From the distant mountains hear the trumpet sound With angelic blessing on the silent town.
4. Come, let us surround Him on this glorious night. Gather here around Him– wondrous Babe of light.
