When the Saviour came to earth,
Heaven’s angels sang their godly praise on high;
For the baby in the stall
Who had come to save us all,
The greatest ever Christmas Carol filled the sky.
The poor shepherds as they watched,
Caring for their little flocks,
Were observers of the great angelic throng,
Would bear witness to the world
Of the birth of Christ the Lord
And the glory of the angels mighty song.
In great haste the shepherds came
To observe the news proclaimed,
To look on Him, who was Israel’s promised Christ.
When they saw the baby boy,
Their hearts overflowed with joy
And returning home they marveled and rejoiced.
Blessed song the angels sung,
Which proclaimed the Promised One,
Is the greatest Christmas Carol ever heard,
Promised peace on earth to men
Through the One who’d pay for sin---
The fulfillment of a great prophetic Word.
“Glory be to God on High;”
Join the chorus of the sky---
Keenly watching for the Lord to come again;
Now as we recall His birth,
Let us all be on alert;
Be rejoicing at the coming of the King.
