Sing all ye people of the earth today
For Jesus Christ was born on Christmas Day
Ring out, ye joyous bells in Heaven, ring on
For Christ is born

Born in a stable bare of humble birth
Born of a Virgin pure, to dwell on earth
Let all mankind rejoice on this great day
For Christ is born

He came to us that wars on earth may cease
He came to bring us hope and joy and peace
Worship o nations at His feet today
For Christ is born

Glory to God on high, we all will sing
Glory and praise we render to our King
Peace on earth, goodwill to men this day
For Christ is born

Stannington is often sung as a Lady's Solo, the other singers joining in with the last line of each verse - 'For Christ is born'. Again, it is usual for everyone to sing the last verse throughout.
