On This Day Earth Shall Ring

Author: Jane Marion Joseph Meter: with refrain Appears in 23 hymnals Scripture: Luke 2 Refrain First Line: Ideo-o-o Lyrics: 1 On this day earth shall ring With the song children sing To the Lord, Christ our King, Born on earth to save us; Him the Father gave us. Refrain: Ideo-o-o, Ideo-o-o, Ideo gloria in excelsis Deo! 2 His the doom, ours the mirth; When He came down to earth Bethlehem saw His birth; Ox and ass beside Him From the cold would hide Him. 3 God's bright star, o'er His head, Wise men three to Him led, Kneeling low by His bed, Lay their gifts before Him, Praise Him and adore Him. 4 On this day angels sing; With their song earth shall ring, Praising Christ, heaven's King, Born on earth to save us; Peace and love He gave us.

I wonder as I wander, out under the sky. 2 When Mary birthed Jesus, all in a cow's stall, came wise men and farmers and shepherds and all, and high from the heavens a star's light did fall; the promise of ages it then did recall. 3 If Jesus had wanted for any wee thing, a star in the sky or a bird on the wing, or all of God's angels in heav'n for to sing, he surely could have had it, 'cause he was the king. 4 I wonder as I wander, out under the sky, how Jesus the Savior did come for to die for poor ord'n'ry people like you and like I.
