1. All the skies tonight sing o'er us!
    Sweet and far 
    Star to star
Maketh solemn chorus.
Time the midnight blest is telling
    When our Lord
    God the World
Made with us His Dwelling

2. Glory in the highest heaven! 
    And again
    Unto men
Their soul's peace be given! 
All our wrong by Him is righted 
    In Whose birth
    Heav'n and earth
Stand for eye united.

3. Sons of men, let nothing grieve you!
    Evermore
    Heaven's door
Widens to receive you!
Brothers of the Babe Eternal
    In His name
    Come and claim
Grace and bliss supernal.
