Lyrics

Glory to God in the high­est!
Hark! how it rings o’er and o’er!
Angels in gar­ments of splen­dor,
Throng from the bright op­en door.
There in the heav­ens is shin­ing
Bethlehem’s won­der­ful light—
Glory to God in the high­est!
This is the ho­ly night.

Refrain

Glory to God, glo­ry to God,
Glory to God in the high­est!
Glory, glo­ry, glo­ry in the high­est!
Glory to God on high!

Glory to God in the high­est!
Over and ov­er it rings,
Praising the in­fant Mes­si­ah,
Praising the great­est of kings.
Over the man­ger so low­ly
Flashes the ra­di­ant light,
Glory to God in the high­est!
This is the ho­ly night.

Refrain
