|BRIGHT and joyful is the morn,
For to us a Child is born;
From the highest realms of Heaven
Unto us a Son is given.
|2||On His shoulders He shall bear
Power and majestyand wear
On His vesture, and His thigh,
Names most awesome, names most high.
|3||Wonderful in counsel He;
The incarnate Deity,
Lord of Ages ne’er to cease;
King of kings, and Prince of Peace.
|4||Come and worship at His feet,
Yield to Christ the homage meet;
From His manger to His throne,
Homage due to God alone.
|James Montgomery, 1771-1854|
