Christ Was Born On Christmas Day lyrics:

Christ was born on Christmas Day
Wreathe the holly, twine the hay;
Christus natus hodie;
The Babe, The Son, the Holy One of Mary.

He is born to set us free,
He is born our Lord to be,
Ex Maria Virgine,
The God, the Lord, by all adored forever.

Let the bright red berries glow,
Every where in goodly show,
Christus natus hodie;
The Babe, the Son, the Holy One of Mary.

Christian men, rejoice and sing,
'Tis the birthday of a King
Ex Maria Virgine;
The God, the Lord, by all ador'd forever.

Sing out with bliss,
His name is this: Immanuel!
As twas foretold in days of old,
By Gabriel.
