Lyrics brought to you by Segnbora-t


Christmas carol with words by John Mason Neale (translating a medieval Latin verse, In Dulci Jubilo, in 1853) to an old German tune of unknown authorship. Not much sung anymore, possibly due to annoyed female singers. (wertperch "wonders how female singers would present it? The politically-correct version would be...interesting.")

Good Christian men, rejoice
With heart, and soul, and voice;
Give ye heed to what we say;
News! News!
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 Christian men, rejoice
With heart, and soul, and voice;
Now ye hear of endless bliss;
Joy! Joy!
Jesus Christ was born for this!
He hath opened heaven’s door
And man is blessed forevermore.
Christ was born for this!
Christ was born for this!

Good Christian men, rejoice
With heart, and soul, and voice;
Now ye need not fear the grave,
Peace! Peace!
Jesus Christ was born to save!
Calls you one calls you all,
To gain His everlasting hall.
Christ was born to save!
Christ was born to save!
