Glory to God! this advent morn,
My soul exulting sings,
Today of old on earth was born
The glorious King of kings.
Today of old on earth was born
The glorious King of kings.

Let every idle folly fall,
And every discord cease;
He reigns in Heaven, the Lord of all,
O’er all the Prince of Peace;
He reigns in Heaven, the Lord of all,
O’er all the Prince of Peace.

Glory to God! in Christ the Lord
We own His name divine;
Earth, Heaven, the Spirit and the Word
Robed in His beauty shine;
Earth, Heaven, the Spirit and the Word
Robed in His beauty shine.

Where angels in their glory bow
They on Messiah call;
And, in His earthly temple, now
We crown Him Lord of all.
And, in His earthly temple, now
We crown Him Lord of all.
