1 Watching in the meadows
O'er their flocks by night,
Shepherds heard glad tidings,
Saw heav'n's wondrous light!
Hallelujahs heard they
From the angels then—
"Peace on earth," their message,
And "Good-will to men!"
"Peace on earth," their message,
And "Good-will to men!"
"Peace on earth,
Peace on earth."

2 Hark, that joyous message!
Mourners, cease to grieve!
Join to hail with gladness,
Blessed Christmas Eve!
Children, let those tidings
Ring forth once again:
"Glory in the highest,
And "Good-will to men!"
"Glory in the highest,"
And "Good-will to men!"
"Peace on earth,
Peace on earth."
