1 “Glory in the highest,” hear the grand refrain,
Glory, glory, peace on earth, goodwill to me;
“Glory in the highest,” rang o’er Bethlehem’s plain;
Then the angels’ message rang again, again.
Glory in the highest, hear the angels’ song,
Glory in the highest, send the word along,
Glory, glory, glory, Christ the Lord is come!
Earth rejoice, a Saviour came this radiant morn.
2 On the plains of Juda, shepherds watch their sheep,
And a silent vigil, did the long night keep,
When a star blazed brightly in the azure sky,
While a burst of music, from the choirs on high. [Refrain]
3 Startled at the cadences, celestial, grand,
Now they hear the message, that they understand,
“Unto you, in Bethlehem, is born, this day,
Christ, the world’s Redeemer; go, your homage pay.” [Refrain]
4 Lo! we bring you tidings of great joy and peace,
Now shall reign a Saviour, and all strivings cease,
Prais’d they, softly singing, ere they took their flight,
“Glory in the Highest! Hail the King of Light.” [Refrain]
