1. Softly the night is sleeping on Bethlehem’s peaceful hill
Silent the shepherds watching, their gentle flocks are still.
But hark! The wondrous music falls from the op’ning sky
Valley and cliff reecho glory to God on high!
Glory to God, peace on earth, good will to men.

2. Come with the gladsome shepherds, quick hast’ning from the fold,
Come with the wise men bringing incense and myrrh and gold;
Come to Him poor and lowly around the cradle throng,
Come with your hearts of sunshine and sing the angels’ song.
Glory to God on high, Glory to God,
Peace on the earth, good will to men.
