1    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:

    Venite adoremus,
    venite adoremus,
    venite adoremus Dominum.

O come, let us adore him,
    O come, let us adore him,
    O come, let us adore him,
    Christ the Lord!

2    The highest, most holy,
    light of light eternal,
    born of a virgin, a mortal he comes;
    Son of the Father
    now in flesh appearing!  Refrain

3    Sing, choirs of angels,
    sing in exultation,
    sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
    Glory to God
    in the highest:  Refrain

4    Yea, Lord, we greet thee,
    born this happy morning;
    Jesus, to thee be glory giv'n!
    Word of the Father,
    now in flesh appearing:  Refrain

Oh Come all ye Faithful makes me think of baby Jesus in the middle of a group of people around him with Angels too. It is evening time.
