Representative Text

1 Angels from the realms of glory
Unto Bethlehem they came
To proclaim the birth of Jesus,
Born for sinners to redeem.

Glory in the highest, glory!
Peace on earth, good will to men;
Listen to the wondrous story,
Christ is born in Bethlehem!

2 Shepherds heard the angel story
While they watched their flocks by night,
And the glory of Jehovah
Shone around in radiant light. [Refrain]

3 And the angel said unto them,
Fear not, for behold I bring
Unto you great joy and tidings
Of a Savior, Priest and King. [Refrain]
