Glory To God

In the quiet of night they waited

For the breaking of the day

The long night was cold and lonely

As they tended the sheep in their care

 

The stars were brilliant above them

A cloudless sky gave them a view

The campfire was warming their bodies

As the mist settled down as a dew

 

Then suddenly up in the heavens

A bright light appeared to their sight

And the form of an angel was seen next

The shepherds leaned back in their fright

 

Glory to God, glory to God

Glory to God in the Highest

Peace and good will, peace and good will

Peace and good will to man

 

“Do not be afraid” said the angel

“I come to bring news of good cheer”

For a child is born in a manger.

Bringing great joy to all who will hear”

 

You will find the babe laid in a manger

With swaddling clothes keeping him warm

Go to Bethlehem and greet the Savior

Who will be the Lord of this world”

 

And suddenly great light was shining

A great heavenly host filled the air

Singing “Glory to God in the highest

Peace on earth and good will to man”

 

Glory to God, glory to God

Glory to God in the Highest

Peace and good will, peace and good will

Peace and good will to man 
It’d easy to get to distracted 

By presents and food and good times

Let’s purpose to stop what we’re doing

And tell of His story of life
This season should be about mercy

And what He has done for us 

He took our sun to the cross 

And showered His love upon us 
This season we celebrate Christmas 

And the birth of our Savior and Lord 

Let’s take a few moments to worship

And sing of the one we adore
Glory to God, glory to God

Glory to God in the Highest

Peace and good will, peace and good will

Peace and good will to man
