REV. AMBROSE M. SCHMIDT, (1857-
1 Hark the bells! hark the bells!
Hear the merry Christmas bells !
As they ring through all the earth,
Telling of the Savior's birth.
Happy morn! happy morn!
Lo the Prince of Peace is born!
Tell the story, Christ of glory,
Comes to reign! comes to reign!
Hark the angels are singing;
Alleluias are ringing;

"Peace to men upon earth And good will," they loud proclaim! REF.-Hark the bells! hark the bells! etc.

2 Wondrous star! wondrous star!
Guiding wise men from afar;
O'er the desert plains they come,
Seeking David's Royal Son;
Low they bow! low they bow!
At the manger cradle now;
Gifts of gold and precious treasure

Offer Him! offer Him! Christmas bells sweetly ringing, Children, carols are singing; Heaven and earth Alleluias Raise to Christ the new-born King! REF.-Hark the bells! hark the bells! etc.

3 Holy Child! Holy Child!

Babe of Bethlehem so mild! Come to us anew to-day, Keep us in the perfect way. Lord of all! Lord of all! At Thy feet we humbly fall! Here we worship and adore Thee, Christ our King! Christ our King! Open wide now the portals Of your hearts, all ye mortals; Let Him in! let him in! Let the Christ-child enter in ! REF.-Hark the bells! hark the bells! etc,

LO, HE COMES, WITH CLOUDS DESCENDING.

"St. Thomas." 8s. 7s. & 4.

1. Lo, He comes, with clouds descending, Once for fav-ored sinners slain; 2. Every eye shall now behold Him Robed in dreadful ma - jes - ty;

3. Every island, sea and mountain, Heaven and earth, shall flee a-way;

Vincent Novello, (1781–1861).

Thousand thousand saints attending Swell the triumph of His train.
Those who set at naught and sold Him, Pierced, and nailed Him to the tree,
All who hate Him must, confounded, Hear the trump proclaim the day;

Alle luia! Alle lu ia! Christ the Lord returns to reign. Deep-ly wail-ing, Deep-ly wail-ing, Shall the true Messiah see. Come to judgment, Come to judgment, Come to judgment, come a- way.

4 Now redemption, long expected,
See in solemn pomp appear;
All His saints, by men rejected,
Now shall meet Him in the air.
Alleluia !

See the day of God appear.

[ocr errors]

5 Yea, Amen! let all adore Thee,
High on Thine eternal throne;
Savior, take the power and glory,
Claim the kingdom for Thine own.
Oh come quickly,
Alleluia! Come, Lord, come.
