“Glory to God,” the angel said,
“Good tidings lo! I bring;
In David’s city is a Babe,
Your Lord and Saviour-King.
“Glory to God, and peace on earth,
Good will to man is shown;
Let heavenly joy at Jesus’ birth
Be through the nations known.”
“Glory to God,” let man reply,
“For Christ the Lord is come;
Behold Him in a manger lie,
A stable is His home.
“Glory to God for love so mild;
How wonderful the plan,
That Jesus once became a child,
To save rebellious man.”
“Glory to God!” let saints on earth
Join in the heavenly song,
And praise Him for the Saviour’s birth
In every land and tongue.
