All Verses


1. Break forth, O beauteous heavenly light,And usher in the morning;O shepherds, shrink not with afright,But hear the angel’s warning.This Child, now weak in infancy,Our confidence and joy shall be,The power of Satan breaking,Our peace eternal making.

2. Break forth, O beauteous heavenly light,To herald our salvation;He stoops to earth–the God of might,Our hope and expectation.He comes in human flesh to dwell,Our God with us, Immanuel;The night of darkness ending,Our fallen race befriending.
