1 How sang the heavenly army
By watching shepherds seen,
When round them lay the silent night,
On pastures wide and green!

2 The glory of their coming
Made moon and starlight dim,
And hearts were cheered forevermore
That heard their bless├Ęd hymn.

3 "Glory to God in Heaven
Peace on the earth below,
For He is born who will redeem
This world from sin and woe."

4 Oh, Lord of our salvation
We praise Thee night and morn,
That we, too, in this darkened life
Have heard that Christ is born!
