Hear the an­gels glad­ly sing­ing,
Christ the Sav­ior now is born;
Shout the tid­ings, till all na­tions
Heed with joy this na­tal morn.


Glory, glo­ry in the high­est
Hear the an­gels sing again,
Glory, glo­ry in the high­est,
Peace on earth, good will to men.

Loud pro­claim the won­drous mes­sage
Of a Sav­ior’s low­ly birth,
How He rest­ed in the man­ger,
He, the Son of God on earth.


Lift your heads, ye faint and weary,
See your Lord, Im­ma­nu­el, King,
Lend your voic­es to the chor­us,
Let the shout tri­um­phant ring.


Peace on earth, what glo­ri­ous tid­ings,
Peace on earth, good will to men;
Let us haste to crown Im­ma­nu­el
With a roy­al dia­dem.
