Lyrics

A great and mighty wonder,
A full and holy cure:
The virgin bears the infant
With virgin honor pure!
Proclaim the Savior's birth:
“To God on high be glory
And peace to all the earth!”
The Word becomes incarnate
And yet remains on high,
And cherubim sing anthems
To shepherds from the sky.
Proclaim the Savior's birth:
“To God on high be glory
And peace to all the earth!”
While thus they sing your Monarch,
Those bright angelic bands,
Rejoice, O vales and mountains,
And oceans, clap your hands.
Proclaim the Savior's birth:
“To God on high be glory
And peace to all the earth!”
Since all He comes to ransom,
By all be He adored,
The infant born in Bethl'em,
The Savior and the Lord.
Proclaim the Savior's birth:
“To God on high be glory
And peace to all the earth!”
All idols then shall perish
And Satan's lying cease,
And Christ shall raise His scepter,
Decreeing endless peace.
Proclaim the Savior's birth:
“To God on high be glory
And peace to all the earth!”
