Rejoice, rejoice Jerusalem, Our Lord is born in Bethlehem,
The noble flower of Jesse's stem,
Rejoice, rejoice Jerusalem, Alleluia!
In humble stall the Lord of all sleeps on, mankind befriending,
Behold His reign un-ending! Alleluia!
Poor shepherds hear the angels sing Alleluia,
they humbly kneel before their King, Alleluia!
From eastern lands come monarchs three, Alleluia,
To Mary's son they bow the knee, Alleluia!
So make we joy on Christmas morn, sing praise to God whose Son is born,
No more a grieving race forlorn, So make we joy on Christmas morn, Alleluia!
Thrice blessed be the Trinity, the fount of our endeavour
To thank our God for ever, Alleluia!
