2449. Hither, Ye Faithful

1. Hither, ye faithful, haste with songs of triumph,
To Bethlehem go your Lord of life to meet;
To you this day is born a Prince and Savior.

O come and let us worship,
O come and let us worship,
O come and let us worship
At His feet.

2. O Jesus, for such wondrous condescension,
Our praises and reverence are an offering meet;
Now is the Word made flesh and dwells among us. [Refrain]

3. Shout His almighty name, ye choirs of angels,
And let the celestial courts His praise repeat;
Unto our God be glory in the highest. [Refrain]
