O Come All Ye Faithful

The text to the Carol O Come All Ye Faithful was originally written in Latin (Adeste Fideles) and was intended to be a hymn, it is attributed to John Wade, an Englishman. The music to O Come All Ye Faithful was composed by fellow Englishman John Reading in the early 1700s. The tune was first published in a collection known as “Cantus Diversi” in 1751. In 1841 Rev. Frederick Oakley is reputed to have worked on the familiar translation of O Come All Ye Faithful which replaced the older Latin lyrics “Adeste Fideles”.

Lyrics:

O come all ye faithful
joyful and triumphant
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem
Come and behold him
Born the King of Angels

O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

Sing choirs of Angels
Sing in exultation
Sing all ye citizens of heav’n above
Sing ye “All glory
To God in the highest”

Yea, Lord we greet Thee
Born this happy morning
Jesu, to Thee be all glory given
Word of the Father
Now in flesh appearing

O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
Christ the Lord
