Representative Text

1. Far, far away on Judea’s plains,
Shepherds of old heard the joyous strains:

Glory to God, glory to God,
Glory to God in the highest;
Peace on earth, good will to men;
Peace on earth, good will to men.

2. Sweet are these strains of redeeming love,
Message of mercy from Heaven above: [Refrain]

3. Lord, with the angels we too would rejoice;
Help us to sing with the heart and voice: [Refrain]

4. Hasten the time when, from every clime,
Men shall unite in the strains sublime: [Refrain]
