Christ was Born on Christmas Day - Christmas Carol with Lyrics

Christ was Born on Christmas Day
From Carols for Christmas-tide (London: Novello) in 1853
Words by Resonet In Laudibus
Translated by John Mason Neale

Lyrics:
Christ was born on Christmas Day;
Wreathe the holly, twine the bay;
Christus natus hodie:
The Babe, the Son, the Holy One of Mary.

He is born to set us free,
He is born our Lord to be,
Ex Maria Virgine:
The God, the Lord, by all ador’d forever.

Let the bright red berries glow
Ev’rywhere in goodly show;
Christus natus hodie:3
The Babe, the Son, the Holy One of Mary.

Christian men, rejoice and sing;
‘Tis the birthday of a King,
Ex MariĆ¢ Virgine:4
The God, the Lord, by all ador’d forever.

Night of sadness;
Morn of Gladness
Evermore:
Ever, Ever:
After many troubles sore,
Morn of gladness evermore and evermore.
Midnight scarcely pass'd and over,
Drawing to this holy morn,
Very early, very early
Christ was born.

Sing out with bliss,
His name is this;
Emmanuel:
As was foretold
In days of old
By Gabriel.

Midnight scarcely pass'd and over,
Drawing to this holy morn,
Very early, very early
Christ was born.
Christ was born on Christmas Day;
Wreathe the holly, twine the bay;
Christus natus hodie:
The Babe, the Son, the Holy One of Mary.

He is born to set us free,
He is born our Lord to be,
Ex Maria Virgine:
The God, the Lord, by all ador’d forever.

Let the bright red berries glow
Ev’rywhere in goodly show;
Christus natus hodie:3
The Babe, the Son, the Holy One of Mary.

Christian men, rejoice and sing;
‘Tis the birthday of a King,
Ex MariĆ¢ Virgine:4
The God, the Lord, by all ador’d forever.

Night of sadness;
Morn of Gladness
Evermore:
Ever, Ever:
After many troubles sore,
Morn of gladness evermore and evermore.
Midnight scarcely pass'd and over,
Drawing to this holy morn,
Very early, very early
Christ was born.

Sing out with bliss,
His name is this;
Emmanuel:
As was foretold
In days of old
By Gabriel.

Midnight scarcely pass'd and over,
Drawing to this holy morn,
Very early, very early
Christ was born.
