Hail the blest morn, See the great Mediator,

Down from the regions of glory descend!

Shepherds, go worship the babe in the manger,

Lo, for a guard, the bright angels attend.

Brightest and best of the sons of the morning,

Dawn on our darkness,and led us thine aid,

Star in the east, the horizon adorning,

Guide where our infant Redeemer was laid

What wondrous love is this,
O my soul! O my soul!

What wondrous love is this! O my soul!

What wondrous love is this
That caused the Lord of bliss

To send this perfect peace, to my soul, to my soul!

To send this perfect peace to my soul!

Hail Blessed morn, See the great Mediator… (etc)
