1. Merrily to Bethlehem the shepherds came
Cheerily a-piping to the Saviour's name.

Glory in the highest, Glory in the highest,
And on earth, peace to men.

2. Hearts so humble, homage grateful, did each bring,
Gifts of love and warm devotion for a King.

Glory in the highest, Glory in the highest,
And on earth, peace to men.

3. Angel heralds sang the message from the sky:
“Unto you is born a Saviour from on High.”

Glory in the highest, Glory in the highest,
And on earth, peace to men.

4. Hearing music, they did wonder, “Can it be?”
Hasten, brethren, let us quickly go and see.

Glory in the highest, Glory in the highest,
And on earth, peace to men.

5. Who is He though just a Babe our hearts adore,
Kings bring gifts and kneeling humbly, grace implore?

Glory in the highest, Glory in the highest,
And on earth, peace to men.

6. Dearest Infant, You are God sent from above,
Please accept our simple hearts that burn with love.

Glory in the highest, Glory in the highest,
And on earth, peace to men.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
