1. How sweet the angels' song,
    That night on Bethlehem's plain!
O could we see that light,
    And hear those notes again!

2. The angels come no more;
    But their sweet hymn of praise
Still, on the plains of earth,
    Our grateful hearts may raise.

3. Yes, we can join that song,
    Which echoes still above:
"Glory to God on high!
    On earth sweet peace and love."
