Representative Text

1 O’er Bethlehem’s bright and sunny plain,
There comes a holy calm,
In solemn tones there Sharon waves
Her beauteous trees of palm.

Refrain:
Let hills, let hills and vales their voice unite,
And greet, and greet with us in lofty praise,
And greet with us in lofty praise,
The Day-Spring from on high;
Be glory, honor unto Him
Who on this day was born.

2 Be glory, honor unto Him,
Who on this day was born,
With heart and voice join in the strain,
This holy, sacred morn. [Refrain]

3 All nations catch the glory theme,
And our Messiah praise,
Let every tongue His honor speak,
And sing in joyful lays. [Refrain]

4 Far on the listening ear of night,
Comes sweet and sacred song,
The angels from their lofty height,
The mighty strain prolong. [Refrain]
