Representative Text

1 O the song that echoed from starry spheres,
And hushed the wondering shepherds’ fears,
Is still the same thro’ the changing years,—
It never shall pass away!

Refrain:
It never shall pass away
While shineth the sun’s bright ray;
Earth pauses each year that story to hear,—
It never shall pass away!

2 Tho’ the ages pass with a solemn tread,
Tho’ pomp and pride of the past is dead,
Still lives the song of that night long fled,—
It never shall pass away! [Refrain]

3 Unto ev’ry nation, in ev’ry clime,
That song shall ring in glad hymn and chime;
Its joy shall live thro’ the realms of time,—
It never shall pass away! [Refrain]
