1 'Glory in the highest heaven,
grace and peace on earth!'
To our world a Son is given,
songs attend his birth:
come with angel hosts to name him,
then proclaim him tell his worth!

2 Shepherds, these glad tidings hearing,
leave their flock and fold,
seek the place of Christ's appearing
David's town of old:
come to worship and adore him,
kneel before him and behold!

3 Wise men travel with their treasure,
frankincense they bring,
myrrh and gold in royal measure
this their offering;
come in homage, drawing near him
to revere him mighty king!

4 Christ is born! the sure salvation
for a world of wrong,
light of every generation,
hope awaited long:
come with joyful faith to meet him,
gladly greet him with a song!
