“Glory to God in the highest.” Luke 2. 14

W. Gadsby   7s

1
At the birth of Christ our King,
Angels made the heavens ring,
Singing, with a solemn joy,
“Glory to the Lord on high.”

2
Glory in the highest height,
Blazing with majestic light,
Shines in David’s root and rod,
The incarnate Son of God.

3
Sinners here by faith may view,
What Omnipotence can do;
And in measure sweetly trace
The rich treasures of his grace.

4
Come, ye mourning souls, rejoice;
Look, and, with a cheerful voice,
Sing the honours of your Lord,
Blazing in the incarnate Word.

5
Soon the whole elect shall view
All the glory God can show!
And in bliss immortal sing,
Hallelujah to their King.
