1 The air is filled with the echoes,
Glad voices are singing again,
Saying "Glory to God in the highest,
And peace and good will to men!"
Listen, dear children, listen,
Hear bells and exulting chimes say
The sweetest song that ever was sung:
Jesus is born today!

2 The world was dark and lonely,
Till the sound of His voice was heard;
And the hearts of the sad and the lowly
Leapt up at His lightest word.
Over the fields in their beauty
The lilies and birds of the air,
The tender love of the Father’s smile
He showed us everywhere.

3 An angel may praise Him in Heaven,
A child may sing upon earth,
With a joy that shall ring thro’ the ages,
The story of Christ and His birth.
Listen, dear children, listen,
Hear bells and the joyous chimes say
The sweetest song that ever was sung:
"Jesus is born today!"

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
