Lyrics

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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.
