O Come, All Ye Faithful
by John F. Wade 

O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye, to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him, born the King of angels;

Refrain
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

True God of true God, Light from Light Eternal,
Lo, He shuns not the Virgin’s womb;
Son of the Father, begotten, not created;

Refrain
Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation;
O sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
Glory to God, all glory in the highest;

Refrain
See how the shepherds, summoned to His cradle,
Leaving their flocks, draw nigh to gaze;
We too will thither bend our joyful footsteps;

Refrain
Lo! star led chieftains, Magi, Christ adoring,
Offer Him incense, gold, and myrrh;
We to the Christ Child bring our hearts’ oblations.

Refrain
Child, for us sinners poor and in the manger,
We would embrace Thee, with love and awe;
Who would not love Thee, loving us so dearly?

Refrain
Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning;
Jesus, to Thee be glory given;
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing.

Refrain


Have a listen to this inspiring video clip. Journey of Faith performed a Christmas "Flash Mob" at the South Bay Galleria in Redondo Beach, singing Christmas Carols in a shopping center, proclaiming that Jesus Christ, the Saviour is born!


“The shepherds said to one another, 
‘Let us go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, 
which the Lord has told us about.’ 
So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph,
 and the Baby, who was lying in the manger.” Luke 2:15-16
