Far, Far Away on Judea’s Plains

Hymns (1985, 2002), no. 212

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!
