The shining heralds from on high
The joyful tidings bear,
With acclamations rend the skies,
And humble shepherds hear.

Glory to God and peace to man,
The heavenly chorus sing,
Let earth repeat the sound again,
And hail the new-born King.

Hosanna let all earth and heaven
Unite this happy morn,
This day the promised child is given,
And God himself is born.
