The song of the angels

Glory to God, the holy angels cry, with peals of joy

Author: Clarence M. Seamans
Tune: ["Glory to God!" the holy angels sing]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. "Glory to God!" the holy angels sing,
With peals of joy the heav'nly arches ring;
"Peace on the earth," how sweet the strains of love,
Peace and good will from him who reigns above.

Glory! Glory! Glory to God!
Glory! Glory! Glory to God!
Glory to God! Glory to God!
"Glory to God in the highest!"
Peace from heaven, Peace from above.
Peace from heaven, Oh, matchless love!
Glory be to God! Glory be to God!
Glory be to God in the highest!

2. "Glory to God!" the King of Peace is born,
Let praises ring to God this happy morn;
Bright Star of Hope, we hail thy welcome light,
Day dawns at last to drive away our night. [Chorus]

3. "Glory to God!" how sweet the heav'nly strain,
Let earth reply and join the glad refrain;
All hail the King, the Christ of Bethlehem,
Place on his head the royal diadem. [Chorus]
