Lyrics

Glory in the highest,
Lo! the mighty strain
Wakes the harps of angels,
Fills the world again.

Refrain

Glory in the highest!
Hear the echo still;
Glory to the Father,
Peace, on earth good will.

Shepherds lost in wonder,
Heard the midnight song,
On the plains of Judah;
From that shining throng.

Refrain

Glory in the highest,
O! the blissful morn,
Spread abroad the tidings;
Christ, the Lord, is born.
