FAR, FAR AWAY ON JUDEA'S PLAINS

Words & Music: John Menzies MacFarlane (1833-1892).

1. Far, far away on Judea's plains,
Shepherds of old heard the joyous strains:

Refrain
Glory to God, glory to God,
Glory to God in the highest;
Peace on earth, good will to men;
Peace on earth, good will to men.

2. Sweet are these strains of redeeming love,
Message of mercy from heaven above: Refrain

3. Lord, with the angels we too would rejoice;
Help us to sing with the heart and voice: Refrain

4. Hasten the time when, from every clime,
Men shall unite in the strains sublime: Refrain
