1 Glory in the highest,
Lo! the mighty strain
Wakes the harps of angels,—
Fills the world again.

Glory in the highest!
Hear the echo still;
Glory to the Father,
Peace, on earth goodwill.

2 Shepherds lost in wonder,
Heard the midnight song,
On the plains of Juda;
From that shining throng. [Refrain]

3 Glory in the highest,
O! the blissful morn,
Spread abroad the tidings;
Christ, the Lord, is born. [Refrain]
