Far, Far Away on Judea’s Plains




Lyrics

1. Far, far away on Judea’s plains,Shepherds of old heard the joyous strains:

Glory to God, Glory to God,Glory to God in the highest;Peace on earth, goodwill to men;Peace on earth, goodwill to men!

2. Sweet are these strains of redeeming love,Message of mercy from heav’n above:

Glory to God,Glory to God,Glory to God in the highest;Peace on earth, goodwill to men;Peace on earth, goodwill to men!

3. Lord, with the angels we too would rejoice;Help us to sing with the heart and voice:

Glory to God,Glory to God,Glory to God in the highest;Peace on earth, goodwill to men;Peace on earth, goodwill to men!

4. Hasten the time when, from ev’ry clime,Men shall unite in the strains sublime:

Glory to God,Glory to God,Glory to God in the highest;Peace on earth, goodwill to men;Peace on earth, goodwill to men!
