Angels rejoiced and sweetly sung

Representative Text

1 Angels rejoiced and sweetly sung,
At our Redeemer's birth;
Mortals, awake; let every tongue
Proclaim His matchless worth,
Proclaim His matchless worth,
Proclaim His, Proclaim His matchless worth.

2 Glory to God, who dwells on high,
And sent His only Son
To take a servant's form, and die
For evils we had done.

3 Good-will to men; ye fallen race,
Arise, and shout for joy;
He comes, with rich, abounding grace
To save, and not destroy.

4 Lord, send the gracious tidings forth,
And fill the world with light,
That Jew, and Gentile, through the earth,
May know Thy saving might.
