Far, Far Away on Judea’s Plains

Lyrics

  1. 1. Far, far away on Judea’s plains,
    Shepherds of old heard the joyous strains:
  2. 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. 2. Sweet are these strains of redeeming love,
    Message of mercy from heav’n above:
  4. Glory to God,
    Glory to God,
    Glory to God in the highest;
    Peace on earth, goodwill to men;
    Peace on earth, goodwill to men!
  5. 3. Lord, with the angels we too would rejoice;
    Help us to sing with the heart and voice:
  6. Glory to God,
    Glory to God,
    Glory to God in the highest;
    Peace on earth, goodwill to men;
    Peace on earth, goodwill to men!
  7. 4. Hasten the time when, from ev’ry clime,
    Men shall unite in the strains sublime:
  8. Glory to God,
    Glory to God,
    Glory to God in the highest;
    Peace on earth, goodwill to men;
    Peace on earth, goodwill to men!
