Sing all in heaven at Jesu's birth
"Glory to God, and peace on earth,
The heart of God through Christ is seen
In mercy and good-will to men!"
Praise Him, extoll'd above all height,
Who doth in worthless worms delight;
God reconciled in Christ confess,
Your present and eternal peace.
From Jesus, manifest below,
Rivers of pure salvation flow;
And pour, on man's distinguish'd race,
Their everlasting streams of grace.
Sing, every soul of Adam's line,
The favourite attribute Divine;
Ascribing, with the hosts above,
All glory to the God of Love.
