C. Austin Miles


Faces bright with delight
On this happy morn,
Tell to all, great and small,
That the Savior King was born;
On this day, far away,
In an eastern clime,
Angel voices sweetly sang
In harmony sublime.


Sing Alleluia,
Sing Alleluia,
Glory be to God on high
And peace on earth;
Sing Alleluia,
Sing Alleluia,
In honor of the Savior’s birth.

Hanging high in the sky
Shone the emblem fair,
And its ray, bright as day,
Told of Jesus lying there;
He whose life, free from strife,
Filled with love divine,
Brighter than the brightest star
Eternally shall shine.


Let us sing of the King
Who in wondrous love,
Left His own glorious throne
In the Father’s home above;
And that we might be free
From the power of sin,
Gave His life a sacrifice
Our souls for Heav’n to win.
