166. Glory to God

1 Glory to God in the highest!
The day of all days
Awakens our praise,—
The thrice-blessed morn
When Jesus was born,—
The name that the church glorifieth;

Refrain:
Glory to God!
Glory to God!
Glory to God in the highest!

2 Glory to God in the highest!
Let heaven resound
To its uttermost bound
With anthems of praise
Both now and always,
While seraph to seraph replieth, [Refrain]

3 Glory to God in the highest!
Let earth, with its hills,
Its valleys and rills,
Reecho His praise
Both now and always,
While mountain to mountain-top crieth, [Refrain]

4 Glory to God in the highest!
His good will and peace
To men will not cease;
The church lifts her voice
While angels rejoice,
And her song with the seraphim’s vieth. [Refrain]

5 Glory to God in the highest!
The bountiful Lord,—
The Father, the Word,
The Spirit,—whose praise
Both now and always
On the wings of infinity flieth: [Refrain]
