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
