…and on earth peace, good will toward men.@Luke 2:14

Rene Bronner, Under the Christmas Star (New York: Lorenz Publishing Company, 1914).

Henry W. Petrie (🔊 pdf nwc).

Ring out tonight thro’ the waiting land
The sweet and glorious Christmas cheer;
For God has given unto us a king,
And we glorify His name so dear.

Refrain

Glory to God in the highest,
Hear the happy voices singing;
Gladness thro’ the world is ringing;
Glory to God in the highest,
Peace on earth, good will t’ward men,
Peace on earth, good will t’ward men!

Far o’er the world hear His message ring,
To all who would His word obey;
And the reward in Heaven will be theirs,
Glorifying there His name alway.

Refrain

Ring out the joy of the heav’nly hosts,
While songs the angels’ chorus sings;
The echoes falling from the realms above,
As the Christmas joy in glory rings.
