1 Blessèd song that the throng
Of rejoicing angels brought,
From the heav’nly choirs above,
And to Judah’s shepherds taught;
Peace on earth, Christ is born,
Hail the first glad Christmas morn,
Glory to God in the highest.

Refrain:
Peace on earth, ’tis mercy’s plan,
Glory to God, good will to man,
Ever sing while you bring,
On each happy Christmas day,
Your hearts unto Him an offering.

2 Angels knew, God was true,
At His promised Savior’s birth,
Glad to tell the news they flew,
To the waiting sons of earth;
Then may we happy be,
We, whom Jesus came to free,
While we repeat their sweet chorus. [Refrain]

3 Banish care and despair,
While we keep this festal day,
Every grateful heart prepare,
Loving thanks and praise to pay;
Every tear, every fear,
Of the past and passing year,
Forget and sing with the angels. [Refrain]

4 Let us now humbly bow,
At the infant Savior’s feet,
Here record our solemn vow,
That no other king we’ll greet;
Him we crown, Him we own,
Savior, king and Lord alone,
Jesus! the glory of angels. [Refrain]
