Lyrics

Cold, the winter, Bright, the star,
Leading shepherds from afar,
Here the hopes of nations are:
Glory in excelsis.

Dark, the stable, Soft, the hay,
Where the baby Jesu lay,
On the world's dividing day:
Glory in excelsis.

Love: the Mother, Love: the child,
Every soul that saw them smiled.
Hope and heaven, reconciled:
Glory in excelsis.

Sing, all angels! Send the sound
Ringing through the world around.
By God's grace, salvation found:
Glory in excelsis.
