If you know where to get a good pho­to of Ma­son (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


Over Ju­dah’s star­ry plain,
Comes the an­gels’ sweet re­frain:
Peace on earth, good will to men,
Glory in the high­est.


Glory, glo­ry, we will sing,
To the lit­tle child­ren’s king;
Hear our hap­py voic­es ring:
Glory in the high­est.

Little child­ren though we be,
Christ was born for such as we,
And some day His face we’ll see,
Glory in the high­est!


Jesus loves us, this we know,
He Him­self has told us so,
And we’ll praise Him here be­low,
Glory in the high­est!
