1 The song that rang o’er all Judea’s plains
On that first glad Christmas morn,
Still is ringing, and we join the glad refrain,
Christ the Lord today is born.

Refrain:
"Glory in the highest,"
Hear them singing, gladness bringing,
Glory in the highest,
Christ the Lord this day is born.

2 The great Messiah prophets had foretold
Slept within a lowly stall;
Came to earth the mediator for our sin,
To redeem us from our fall. [Refrain]

3 The song begun by angel hosts above,
We, united, join to sing;
Let exultant hallelujahs now arise
To our Savior, Lord, and king. [Refrain]
