Far, Far Away on Judea’s Plains

Joyfully

1. Far, far away on Judea’s plains,

Shepherds of old heard the joyous strains:

[Chorus]

Glory to God,

Glory to God,

Glory to God in the highest;

Peace on earth, goodwill to men;

Peace on earth, goodwill to men!

2. Sweet are these strains of redeeming love,

Message of mercy from heav’n above:

[Chorus]

Glory to God,

Glory to God,

Glory to God in the highest;

Peace on earth, goodwill to men;

Peace on earth, goodwill to men!

3. Lord, with the angels we too would rejoice;

Help us to sing with the heart and voice:

[Chorus]

Glory to God,

Glory to God,

Glory to God in the highest;

Peace on earth, goodwill to men;

Peace on earth, goodwill to men!

4. Hasten the time when, from ev’ry clime,

Men shall unite in the strains sublime:

[Chorus]

Glory to God,

Glory to God,

Glory to God in the highest;

Peace on earth, goodwill to men;

Peace on earth, goodwill to men!
