Representative Text

1 O’er the earth glad songs are ringing,
Sweetest music are the notes that fall,
Ev’rywhere are voices singing,
Singing praises to the Lord of all.
Happy hearts repeat the story
While the voices all in chorus ring,
Praise His name, praise His name,
Our Lord and King.

Refrain:
Christ, the King long promised,
Sent from God above,
Christ, the only Son, Christ the mighty One,
Whose name is love.
Tell the blessed story,
All the wide world o’er,
He shall reign alone
One His kingly throne,
Forevermore.

2 For the glories of creation,
For the beauty of a world so fair,
For the wonder of salvation
Hear His people praise Him ev’rywhere.
Happy hearts repeat the story
While the voices all in chorus ring,
Praise His name, praise His name,
Our Lord and King. [Refrain]

3 All the world bows low before Him,
In the glory of His pow’r and might,
All the angel hosts adore Him,
In the realms of everlasting light.
Happy hearts repeat the story
While the voices all in chorus ring,
Praise His name, praise His name,
Our Lord and King. [Refrain]
