Good Christians All Rejoice


Melody:"In Dulci Jubilo" anon./trad. German C.14th
as recorder quartet for DDTT and SSDA/ATTB
Lyrics:John Mason Neale (1818-1866)
Origin:German / English



Good christians all, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice;
Give you heed to what we say:
Jesus Christ is born today,
Ox and ass before him bow
And he is in the manger now;
Christ is born today,
Christ is born today.

Good christians all, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice;
Now you hear of endless bliss,
Jesus Christ was born for this:
He has oped the heavenly door
And man is blest for evermore;
Christ was born for this,
Christ was born for this.

Good christians all, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice;
Now you need not fear the grave:
Jesus Christ was born to save,
Calls you one and calls you all
To gain his everlasting hall;
Christ was born to save,
Christ was born to save.
