Angels Proclaim The Happy Morn

Representative Text

1 Angels proclaim the happy morn,
Their echoes fill the sky,
To you a Savior, Christ, is born,
Glory to God on high.

2 He left the shining worlds above,
And laid His glory by,
To show the wonders of His love,
Glory to God on high.

3 Good-will to men, and peace on earth,
Was sung to shepherds nigh;
Our hearts rejoice at Jesu’s birth,
Glory to God on high.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
