        (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. Rejoice, rejoice, this happy morn,

        A Savior unto us is born,

        The Christ, the Lord of Glory.

        His lowly birth in Bethlehem

        The angels from on high proclaim

        And sing redemption's story.

        My soul, extol God's great favor,

        Bless Him ever For salvation,

        Give Him praise and adoration.
