1 Sweetest music, softly stealing,
Thro’ the silence of the night;
To the shepherds now revealing,
Christ is born, the source of light.

Refrain:
Glory unto God the Father,
Who hath sent His only Son,
That He may all nations gather
Round His feet and make them one.

2 Now in David’s ancient city
He is born, the angels say;
God the Father, full of pity,
Sends His Son to you today. [Refrain]

3 Shepherds, to the stable hasten,
There your Savior Christ is born,
Son of Mary, lowly maiden,
On this first glad Christmas morn. [Refrain]

4 He from highest heav’n descending
Comes on earth your woes to heal,
That, your every want attending,
Love of God He may reveal. [Refrain]
