Angels chant the heav’nly song,
Peace on earth, good-will;
Hear the echo loud and long
On the midnight still;
Glory, glory, hear them say—
Christ the Lord is born today,
Glory be to God in the highest, glory!
Peace on earth, good-will to men.
Unto us is born a Savior,
Unto us is born a king;
Peace on earth, O chant the chorus,
Let the world with gladness sing.
Unto us is born a king,
Christ the Prince of Peace;
Other kingdoms wane and fall,
His shall never cease;
For He rules in righteousness,
Rules in love our lives to bless,
His shall be the power that shall fill creation,
Praise Him, for He reigns for aye.
Lift a song of praise today,
At this holy time,
When to Bethl’em far away
Came the Guest divine;
When His star in matchless light
Gemmed the sky that wondrous night,
Glory in the highest, oh, bow before Him,
Christ the Babe of Bethlehem.
