Glory Be To God On High : Lyrics
1. Glory be to God on high,
And peace on Earth descend;
God comes down; he bows the sky,
And shows himself our friend!
God th’invisible appears,
God, blest, the great I AM,
Sojouns in this vale of tears,
An Jesus is his name.
2. Him the angels all adored,
Their maker and their King:
Tidings of their humbled Lord
They now to mortals bring:
Emptied of his majesty,
Of dazzling glories shorn,
Being’s source begins to be,
And God himself is born!
3. See th’eternal Son of God
A mortal Son of man,
Dwelling in an earthly clod,
Whom heav’n cannot contain!
Stand amazed, ye heav’ns, at this!
The Lord of Earth and skies!
Humbled to the dust he is,
And in a manger lies!
4. We the sons of men rejoice,
The Prince of Peace proclaim,
With heav’n’s host lift up our voice,
And shout Immanuel’s name:
Knees and hearts to him we bow,
Of our flesh, of our bone,
Jesus is our brother now,
And God is all our own!
