Cradled in Bethlehem’s stable and stall,
See the Redeemer, the Savior of all;
God became man, O His love who can tell
Who to save sinners on earth came to dwell.
Angels exulting of glory did sing,
Told to the shepherds the birth of the King.
Fear not, said they, for the tidings are good;
In David’s city you’ll find Christ the Lord.

Angelic hosts to the Lord gave the praise,
Let us rejoicing unite in their lays;
Glory to God, for on earth there is peace,
Good will to man, as proclaimed will ne’er cease.
Glory to God in the highest, we sing,
Glory to Jesus, our Savior and king.
Now there is peace and there’s good will to men,
Glory to God, hallelujah, Amen.
