1 Praise to God and peace on earth!
hear what heaven's angels say;
fear shall die at glory's birth
Jesus is alive today!

2 Shepherds have no time to lose,
come to worship, go their way
bursting with the latest news
Jesus is alive today!

3 Mary wonders at her child,
keeps in mind, as well she may
promises in him fulfilled
Jesus is alive today!

4 Angels' music, shepherds' word,
we shall sing as well as they;
Mary's Son is Christ the Lord
Jesus is alive today!
