1 Hear the angels gladly singing,
Christ the Savior now is born;
Shout the tidings, till all nations
Heed with joy this natal morn.

Glory, glory in the highest
Hear the angels sing again,
Glory, glory in the highest,
Peace on earth, good will to men.

2 Loud proclaim the wondrous message
Of a Savior’s lowly birth,
How He rested in the manger,
He, the Son of God on earth. [Refrain]

3 Lift your heads, ye faint and weary,
See your Lord, Immanuel, King,
Lend your voices to the chorus,
Let the shout triumphant ring. [Refrain]

4 Peace on earth, what glorious tidings,
Peace on earth, good will to men;
Let us haste to crown Immanuel
With a royal diadem. [Refrain]
