1 Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Angels sang that blessed day,
When the Lord of life and glory,
In a lowly manger lay;
Ringing thro’ the aisles of heaven,
Came that chant sublime—
Glory in the highest glory!
Glory to God on high.

Hallelujah! Glory to God,
Hallelujah! Glory to God,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Glory to God on high.

2 Still on earth, our happy voices,
May repeat the thrilling strain,
That the angels sang in chorus,
Over far Judea’s plain;
Fainting hearts look up with gladness,
Peace on earth today,
Glory in the highest glory!
Glory to God on high. [Refrain]

3 Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Richest gifts to thee we bring,
All we have and all we hope for,
As a Christmas offering;
Glory in the highest glory,
Peace, good will to men.
Glory in the highest glory!
Glory to God on high. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
