        1. Let us all with gladsome voice
        Praise the God of heaven,
        Who, to bid our hearts rejoice,
        His own Son hath given.

        2. To this vale of tears He comes,
        Here to serve in sadness,
        That with Him in heaven's fair homes
        We may reign in gladness.

        3. We are rich, for He was poor;
        Is not this a wonder?
        Therefore praise God evermore
        Here on earth and yonder.

        4. 0 Lord Christ, our Savior dear,
        Be Thou ever near us.
        Grant us now a glad new year.
        Amen, Jesus, hear us!
