1. All in the silent night,
Numberless angels bright
Came on their wings of light,
Thronging the deep blue sky;
Beautiful songs they sang,
Wonderful echoes rang;
Glory to Christ our King,
Glory to God on high.

Glory, Glory to God!
Glory, Glory to God,
Glory, all glory to God on high!
Let ev'ry listening heart reply;
Glory, Glory to God!
Glory, Glory to God,
Far let the joyful tidings fly;
All glory to God on high!

2. Join in the song so sweet,
How with the shepherds meet,
haste to the Saviour's feet
Worship the Child divine;
Come with the men of old,
Nor let the heart withhold
Aught of its purest gold;
All to the King resign. Chorus

3. Broken the shades of night;
Hail to the Dayspring bright!
Spreading the blessed light,
Tell of a Saviour born,
Till all mankind shall see
Mercy, so great and free,
Till on this earth shall be
Dawn of eternal morn. Chorus
