1 Christ is born to be our king
listen, as the angels sing,
to the heavens echoing,
'Glory be to God on high!'

2 Shepherds in the fields at night
hear the tidings, see the light,
find the child, in praise unite:
'Glory be to God on high!'

3 Christians down the ages tell
Christ can break the powers of hell,
so that we may sing as well,
'Glory be to God on high!'
