1. All my heart today rejoices, As I hear, Far and near, Sweetest angel voices: "Christ is born," their choirs are singing, Till the air, Everywhere, Now with joy is ringing. 2. Hark! A voice from yonder manger, Soft and sweet, Does entreat: "Flee from woe and danger; Come and see; from all that grieves you You are freed; All you need I will surely give you." 3. Come, then, let us hasten yonder; Here let all, Great and small, Kneel in awe and wonder; Love Him who with love is yearning; Hail the star That from far Bright with hope is burning!
