Representative Text

1 Over Judah’s starry plain,
Comes the angels’ sweet refrain:
"Peace on earth, good will to men,
Glory in the highest."

Glory, glory, we will sing,
To the little children’s king;
Hear our happy voices ring:
"Glory in the highest."

2 Little children though we be,
Christ was born for such as we,
And some day His face we’ll see,
"Glory in the highest!" [Refrain]

3 Jesus loves us, this we know,
He Himself has told us so,
And we’ll praise Him here below,
"Glory in the highest!" [Refrain]
