When they told of Jesus’ birth,

joy of heaven come to earth,

there were radiant angels singing,

there were kings - their treasure bringing,

and the star shone afar.

All the glorious word to tell:

God with us - Emmanuel.


There were simple shepherds too,

come this blessed child to view.

Patient ox and ass and sheep

joined the Christmas watch to keep,

where He lay on the hay.

All the glorious word to tell:

God with us - Emmanuel.


When God made the creatures all,

striped and spotted - large and small,

came the word, that word has stood,

these - my creatures - all are good,

creeping slug, lady-bug.

All the glorious word to tell:

God with us - Emmanuel.


Come then creatures, one and all,

come for blessings to the stall.

Hear the heavenly music ring,

cats, dogs, monkeys, everything

From the whale to the snail.

All the glorious word to tell:

God with us - Emmanuel.
