Come Ye Lofty lyrics:

Come ye lofty, come ye lowly
Let your songs of gladness ring
In a stable lies the Holy
In a manger rests the King
See in Mary's arms reposing
Christ by highest Heaven adored
Come, your circle round Him closing
Pious hearts that love the Lord.

Come ye poor, no pomp of station
Robes the Child your hearts adore
He, the Lord of all salvation
Shares your want, is weak and poor
Oxen, round about behold them
Rafters naked, cold, and bare
See the shepherds, God has told them
That the Prince of Life lies there.

Come, ye children, blithe and merry
This one Child your model make
Christmas holly, leaf, and berry
All be prized for His dear sake
Come ye gentle hearts and tender
Come ye spirits keen and bold
All in all your homage render
Weak and mighty, young and old.

High above a star is shining
And the wise men haste from far
Come, glad hearts, and spirits pining
For you all has ris'n the star
Let us bring our poor oblations
Thanks and love, and faith and praise
Come, ye people, come, ye nations
All in all draw nigh to gaze.

Hark! the Heaven of heavens is ringing
Christ the Lord to man is born!
Are not all our hearts, too, singing
Welcome, welcome, Christmas morn?
Still the Child, all power possessing
Smiles as through the ages past
And the song of Christmas blessing
Sweetly sinks to rest at last.
