Come hither, ye faithful
(Edward Caswall/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Come hither, ye faithful.

1. Come hither, ye faithful;
  triumphantly sing;
come, see in the manger
  our Saviour and King!
To Bethlehem hasten,
  with joyful accord!
Oh, come ye, come hither,
  to worship the Lord!

2. True Son of the Father,
  he comes from the skies;
to be born of a Virgin
  he doth not despise.
To Bethlehem hasten,
  with joyful accord!
Oh, come ye, come hither,
  to worship the Lord!

3. Hark, hark to the angels!
  all singing in heaven:
"To God in the highest
  all glory be given!"
To Bethlehem hasten,
  with joyful accord!
Oh, come ye, come hither,
  to worship the Lord!

4. To thee, then, O Jesus!
  this day of thy birth,
be glory and honour
  through heaven and earth!
True Godhead Incarnate!
  Omnipotent Word!
Oh, come, let us hasten
  to worship the Lord!

From the Latin (Adeste fideles), translated by Edward Caswall,
in: Schaff, Philip: Christ in Song, 1870, 37-38.
