Hymn/Song Information

GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST




Songs of praise the angels sang,
Heaven with alleluias rang,
When creation was begun,
When God spoke and it was done.


Songs of praise awoke the morn
When the Prince of Peace was born;
Songs of praise arose when He
Captive led Captivity.


Heaven and earth must pass away!
Songs of praise shall crown that day!
God will make new heavens and earth;
Songs of praise shall hail their birth.


And can man alone be dumb,
Till that glorious kingdom come?
No: the church delights to raise
Psalms, and hymns, and songs of praise.


Saints below, with heart and voice,
Still in songs of praise rejoice,
Learning here, by faith and love,
Songs of praise to sing above.


Borne upon their latest breath,
Songs of praise shall conquer death;
Then amidst eternal joy,
Songs of praise their powers employ.


Hymns of glory, songs of praise,
Father, unto Thee we raise;
Jesus, glory unto Thee,
With the Spirit, ever be.


---Alternative verses---


Songs of praise the angels sang,
Heaven with alleluias rang,
When Jehovah’s work begun,
When he spoke and it was done.


Songs of praise awoke the morn
When the Prince of Peace was born;
Songs of praise arose when He
Set the slaves of Satan free.


When we meet the judgment day,
When the heavens have passed away,
When we see new heavens and earth;
Songs of praise shall hail their birth.


Praising to their latest breath,
Saints can conquer pain and death;
And amidst eternal joy,
Praise will still their powers employ.


And will man alone be dumb,
Till that glorious kingdom come?
No: the church delights to raise
Psalms, and hymns, and songs of praise.


And shall man alone be dumb,
Till that glorious kingdom come?
No: his heart delights to raise
Psalms, and hymns, and songs of praise.


And shall man alone be dumb,
Till that glorious kingdom come?
No! the church delights to raise
Psalms, and hymns, and songs of praise.


And shall Christians fail to sing
till on earth Christ come as King?
No; the Church delights to raise
psalms and hymns and songs of praise.


Praising then with heart and voice,
let us in the Lord rejoice;
Learning here by faith and love,
How to sing his praise above.
