Representative Text

1 Listen! o’er the plains of Judah,
Music wakes the starlight night;
Voices of the angels singing,
Chorals through the vaulted high.

Peace on earth! O melting story;
God and heav’n to men draws nigh;
Glory in the highest glory!
Glory be to God on high.

2 For this favored time, the promise,
Of the waiting years fulfils,
As the silence of the starlight,
With the angels’ chorus thrills. [Refrain]

3 Yes, the Child in yonder manger
Is the Son of God most High
And the angel host adore Him,
Singing sweetly thro’ the sky. [Refrain]

4 Earth, repeat the wondrous story,
Own the Child your rightful King;
Let the chorus of the angels,
In its truth and sweetness ring. [Refrain]
