Hymn/Song Information

Now let us sing the angels song That ran




Now let us sing the angels’ song
That rang so sweet and clear,
When heav’nly light and music fell
On earthly eye and ear;
To Him we sing, our Savior King,
Who always deigns to hear.

“Glory to God, and on earth peace,
Glory to God, good-will to men.”



He came to tell the Father’s love,
His goodness, truth and grace:
To show the brightness of His smile,
The glory of His face,
With His own light, so full and bright,
The shades of death to chase.

“Glory to God, and on earth peace,
Glory to God, good-will to men.”



He came to bring the weary ones
True peace and perfect rest;
To take away the guilt and sin,
Which darkened and distressed,
That great and small might hear His call,
And all in Him be blessed.

“Glory to God, and on earth peace,
Glory to God, good-will to men.”



He came to bring a glorious gift,
“Good-will to men”—and why?
Because He loved us, Jesus came,
For us to live and die;
Then sweet and long, the angels’ song,
Again we raise on high.

“Glory to God, and on earth peace,
Glory to God, good-will to men.”
