Lyrics

’Twas on a clear and peaceful night,
And shepherds watched their flock by night,
That angels came and sang the song,
For unto you a Savior’s born.

Refrain

Glory to God! glory to God!
Glory to God in the highest!
Angels and men now join in the song,
Hosanna! To us a Savior is born.

’Twas in a manger He was found;
The wise men came with joy profound;
The morning star shone brightly there
O’er Heaven’s Babe, the fairest fair.

Refrain

In Bethlehem this Prince of Peace
Then to the captives gave release,
A mighty prince enthroned above,
Rules nations with His wondrous love.
