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:
