View lyrics
Deep in the prophet’s sacred page
grand in the poet’s winged word
slowly in type, from age to age
nations beheld their coming Lord

Til through the deep Judean night
rang out the song “Goodwill to men!”
Hymned by the first born sons of light,
re-echoed now “Goodwill! Amen.”

Chorus:
Born to reign in us forever,
born a child, and yet a king,
Born His people to deliver
Let us all, in anthem, sing:
“Hallelujah! The Messiah has come!”

Verse 2
That life of truth those deeds of love,
that death of pain, mid hate and scorn,
these all are past, and now above
He reigns our King once crowned with thorn.

To Him that sits upon the throne
the Lamb once slain for sinful men;
be honor might, all by Him won
glory and praise, amen, amen.

Chorus

Born to reign in us forever,
born a child, yet a king.
Born His people to deliver,
let us all, in anthem, sing:
“Hallelujah! The Messiah has come!”

Verse 3
O God of God, O Light of Light
Thou Prince of Peace, Thou King of Kings
to Thee where angels know no night;
the sound of praise forever rings
