Glory to God

"Glory to God in the Highest"
The heavenly angels sang,
As over the Bethlehem hillsides
The wondrous message rang.

The shepherds feared and marvelled
At the glory of the Lord,
And that they should be chosen
As channels for His Word.

Lord, we have met to worship.
Come down on us, we pray,
So we may see Your Glory
And hear the words You say.

Then may we hasten gladly,
As shepherds long ago,
To share the news of Jesus
With those who do not know.
