O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
All seated on the ground
The angel of the Lord came down
And glory shone around,
And glory shone around.

"Fear not," said he; for mighty dread had seized their troubled mind,
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring,
To you and all mankind,
To you and all mankind.

"To you, in David's town, this day
Is born, of David's line,
The Savior, who is Christ the Lord;
And this shall be the sign,
And this shall be the sign;

"The heav'nly Babe you there shall find
To human view displayed,
All meanly wrapped in swathing bands,
And in a manger laid,
And in a manger laid."

"All glory be to God on high,
And to the earth be peace;
Goodwill henceforth from heav'n to men
Begin and never cease,
Begin and never cease!"

Amen.
