The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God. Luke 2:20
Our day of joy is here again,
With love and peace and song;
Come, let us join th’angelic strain
With voices clear and strong.
Glory to our God, we sing,
Glory to our Lord and king;
Peace, goodwill with all abide
This holy Christmas tide.
When darkness lay upon this earth,
A glorious light did shine,
God sent a Gift of priceless worth
And showed His love divine.
Now to the manger let us go
To worship and adore
The tender babe upon the straw,
Our Savior evermore.
How wonderful that God’s own Son
Should so Himself abase!
He thrust the mighty from their throne,
And gave the lowly grace.
