Hear what glorious song of angels
Is now ringing through the air;
Never valley, never mountain
Heard an anthem half so fair.
Is the jubilant refrain;
God is sending us a Savior,
Peace on earth, good will to man.
Messengers of God’s free mercy
Are now seen by human eye;
Shepherds hear the wondrous message:
Glory be to God on high.
Let us also sing the praises
Of our God so full of love,
Who on Christmas sent a Savior,
Sent a Savior from above.
