II. 

      Now wakes the triumphant song 
      Of the angelic throng, 
Now shines the natal star with bright'ning ray; 
      The radiant morning awaits 
      Beyond her crystal gates, 
To give the world its primal Christmas day. 
 
III. 

      From out the ancient night 
      Springs the prophetic light, 
The dawning of the Golden Age appears; 
      The wrathful voice is still 
      On Ebal's cloudy hill, 
The curse is lifted from the dolorous years. 
 
IV. 

      Perpetual glory fills 
      The spaces of the hills, 
The paths the humble Galilean trod, 
      The healing hand to reach, 
      Love's benison to teach, 
Man's sovereign hope, the fatherhood of God. 
 
V. 

      With charity and cheer, 
      The swift recurrent year 
Its gracious Christmas message shall repeat, 
      Till peace and Christ's good will 
      Th' regenerate earth shall fill, 
And Love's eternal purpose is complete.
