2314. Here Again

1. With joy tonight again we meet,
With song the Christmas time to greet;
Our hearts and voices now we raise,
To give to Christ, our Savior, praise.

We’ll sing tonight and happy be,
And shout aloud o’er earth and sea,
The Christmas time is here again;
Glory to God, good will to men!
Glory! Glory! Glory!
Glory to God! let voices sing,
Glory to God! let sweet bells ring;
The Christmas time is here again;
Glory to God! good will to men.

2. In Bethlehem the Lord was born;
His coming brought the glorious morn;
We bring to Him our gift of song,
And would the notes of joy prolong. [Refrain]

3. We praise the name of God above,
We thank Him for His boundless love;
Oh! why should we not happy be,
Since Christ from sin hath set us free? [Refrain]

Glory! glory!
Glory to God! good will to men.
