Representative Text

1 Night in silence deep and holy,
Broods o’er ancient Bethlehem;
Shepherds in their station lowly,
Faintly hear the starry hymn
Sounding forth creation’s story,
Where the sons of God sang glory.
Glory in the highest, glory,
Peace on earth, good will to men.

Refrain:
Hark a chorus grand,
From that shining land,
Glory in the highest, glory,
Peace on earth, good will to men.

2 Earth is wrapped in silent slumber;
Souls lie prone in deeper night;
Nearer, nearer, without number,
Come the heralds, robed in light.
Now creation’s hymn is blending
With redemption’s joy unending.
Glory in the highest, glory,
Peace on earth, good will to men. [Refrain]

3 Night in silence deep and holy,
We thy blessèd mystery share;
Savior, at Thy manger lowly,
Bow our souls in humble prayer.
Waiting for th’ eternal morning,
We, with saints and angels joining,
Glory in the highest, glory,
Peace on earth, good will to men. [Refrain]
