ANTIOCH. C. M.

Christmas.

JOY to the world! the Lord is come;

Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And heaven and nature sing.

2 Joy to the earth! the Saviour reigns;
Let men their songs employ;

While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains,
Repeat the sounding joy.

3 No more let sin and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;

He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found.

4 He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove

The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love.

ADESTE FIDELES. 11 11, 11 11.

Christmas.

COME hither, ye faithful, triumphantly sing;

Come see in the manger the angels' dread King!
To Bethlehem hasten, with joyful accord;
O come ye, come hither, to worship the Lord!

2 True Son of the Father, He comes from the skies;
To be born of a Virgin He does not despise;
To Bethlehem hasten, with joyful accord;
O come ye, come hither, to worship the Lord!
3 Hark, hark, to the angels, all singing in heaven,
"To God in the highest, all glory be given!"
To Bethlehem hasten, with joyful accord:
O come ye, come hither, to worship the Lord!
4 To Thee, then, O Jesus, this day of Thy birth,
Be glory and honor through heaven and earth;
True Godhead incarnate, omnipotent Word!
O come, let us hasten to worship the Lord!

HOW firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,

Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word!
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
||:You, who unto Jesus for refuge have fled?:||

2 "Fear not, I am with thee; O be not dismayed!
For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;
I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
||:Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand. :||
3 "When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply:
The flames shall not hurt thee; I only design

:Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine. :||
4 "E'en down to old age all My people shall prove
My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;

And then, when gray hairs shall their temples adorn,
||:Like lambs they shall still in My bosom be borne. :||

5 "The soul that on Jeus hath leaned for repose

I will not-I cannot desert to His foes;

That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake :I'll never-no, never-no, never forsake!":||
