BY (REV.) JOSEPH C. BOOTH.
Hail! hail! thou joyful, joyful Christmas morn,
On thee the world's triumphant King was born;
The Angel's Song, with gladness we repeat,
And worship, like the Magi at his feet!
Hail! hail! thou happy, happy Christmas Day
On thee the Savior entered human clay;
The Shepherds, in the manger, saw their King
And we this day, like them, His praises sing!
Hail! hail! thou glorious, glorious Christmas night,
On thee the starlit heavens were filled with light,
So may our hearts with Christmas glory shine—
Reflecting as the star, God's Light Divine!
