Representative Text

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.

"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]
