1 There rose on the air a sweet, sweet song,
That told of a Saviour’s birth;
The song of that pure and holy throng,
That brought the good news to the earth.
Jesus, our Saviour, we hail Thee as our King!
Jesus, our Saviour, to Thee our hearts we bring!
Hail! All hail! O hail the King of glory!
Laud and magnify His holy name!
2 Glad tidings of joy to man they bring;
“Your Saviour is born today.”
As angels the sweet, sweet song still sing,
We’ll join in their heavenly lay. [Refrain]
3 Thro’ mountain and vale the sweet song rang:
“Glad tidings of joy we bring.”
The mountain echoed the song they sang,
“Peace and good will to man.” [Refrain]Source: Hymns and Carols #6
