Give to God eternal glory.
Hear the choir of angels sing.
Shepherds marvel at the story,
Eastern men their treasures bring.
Come and worship,
Kneel before the new born King.
See this King, now bruised and battered,
Rugged cross replacing throne.
Fearful friends have all been scattered,
In your place he hangs alone.
It is finished!
For your sins he does atone.
Still the call cries through the ages
'Kneel before this King of kings.'
Do not dare to face the wages
Your rebellious nature brings.
Come to Jesus,
In him life eternal springs.
You who sovereign grace have tasted
Spread the message far and wide.
In his praise no time is wasted,
Lift the name of Christ who died.
Let our King be magnified!
