Lyrics

“Glory to God,” the angels sing,
“Glad tidings, lo, I bring,
Glad tidings, lo, I bring!
I David's city lies a babe,
And Jesus is the child,
And Jesus is the child,
And Jesus is the child.”

“Glory to God,” let man reply,
“For Christ, the Lord, is come,
For Christ, the Lord, is come;
Behold him in a manger lie,
A stable is His room,
A stable is His room,
A stable is His room”

“Glory to God, let all the earth,
Join in the heavenly song,
Join in the heavenly song,
And praise Him for a Saviour's birth,
In every land and tongue,
In every land and tongue,
In every land and tongue!
And praise Him for a Saviour's birth,
In every land and tongue,
In every land and tongue,
In every land and tongue!”
