Christians, awake, salute the happy morn
Whereon the Savior of the world was born;
Rise to adore the mystery of love,
Which hosts of angels chanted from above;
With them the joyful tidings first begun
Of God incarnate and the Virgin's Son.
- Verse 1 of the hymn "Christians, Awake, Salute the Happy Morn," by John Byrom (18th cent.)
