Representative Text

1. Glory to God in the highest!
Hark! how it rings o’er and o’er!
Angels in garments of splendor,
Throng from the bright open door.
There in the heavens is shining
Bethlehem’s wonderful light—
Glory to God in the highest!
This is the holy night.

Refrain
Glory to God, glory to God,
Glory to God in the highest!
Glory, glory, glory in the highest!
Glory to God on high!

2. Glory to God in the highest!
Over and over it rings,
Praising the infant Messiah,
Praising the greatest of kings.
Over the manger so lowly
Flashes the radiant light,
Glory to God in the highest!
This is the holy night. [Refrain]
