1. Behold a lucid Light appears,
Which brightens all the eastern sky,
Hark, hark what sounds salute our ears,
All glory give to God on high.
2. "Good-will to men, and peace on earth,"
The Heav'nly Choirs united cry
At the Divine Redeemer's birth;
And glory be to God on high.
3. Let mortals catch the sacred flame,
Till round the world the son shall fly
Which sounds the Great Redeemer's Name
And glory give to God on high.
