1. Far, far away on Judea’s plains,Shepherds of old heard the joyous strains:
[Chorus]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:
3. Lord, with the angels we too would rejoice;Help us to sing with the heart and voice:
4. Hasten the time when, from ev’ry clime,Men shall unite in the strains sublime:
