Now let us sing the song again
Heard by the shep­herds long ago;
The joy­ful song, the an­gel strain:
Peace and good-will to men below.


Glory to God in the high­est,
Glory to God in the high­est,
Glory to God in the high­est,
Sing it, O sing it again;
Glory to God in the high­est,
Peace and good-will to men.

O sing of Him in joy­ful way,
Who first ap­peared with­in the stall;
O chant His praise aloud tod­ay,
He came be­cause He loved us all.


He came to wash away our sin,
He came to set the cap­tive free;
He came to ga­ther wan­d’rers in,
To save and bless us glo­rious­ly.
