1. Christ is born! Christ is born!
Ring the news on Christmas morn;
Mary's Son! Mary's Son!
Come and laud him, every one:

"Glory be to God on high,"
Joyful Angels make reply.

2. Lo! the star! Lo! the Star!
Guides the wise men from afar.
Now it stays! Now it stays!
In the manger offer praise:

"Glory be to God on high,"
Joyful Angels make reply.

3. Shepherds, go! Shepherds, go!
Bethlehem shall wonders show;
You shall find! You shall find!
Mary's babe Lord of Mankind:

"Glory be to God on high,"
Joyful Angels make reply.

4. Peace on earth! Peace on earth!
Heralds in the virgin birth.
Give God thanks! Give God thanks!
Now we join the heavenly ranks:

"Glory be to God on high,"
Joyful Angels make reply.
