Representative Text

1 “Glory to God in the highest!”
Said the angels to the shepherds on the plain;
Singing with music the sweetest,
Christ has come, a Savior evermore to reign.

“Glory to God in the highest!
Peace on earth, good will to men”;
Let angels join the chorus,
And help to praise His name.

2 Glory to God in the highest!
Let its joyful melodies reach every land;
Christ, our Redeemer, the greatest,
Has appeared to save from sin by His right hand. [Refrain]

3 Glory to God in the highest!
For His mercy and His goodness unto all;
Oh, for His love! ’tis the deepest
Ever shown to sinful mortals on this ball. [Refrain]

4 Glory to God in the highest!
For this wondrous plan of pardon through His blood;
How blest to know His forgiveness,
Granting full salvation through the grace of God. [Refrain]
