Description

SATB and Organ. A wonderful, sprightly carol in the English tradition. A memorable melody with a repeating refrain makes this easy to learn and fun for your choir to sing. Lessons and Carols? You bet!

A great and mighty wonder,
a full and holy cure!
the Virgin bears the Infant
with virgin-honour pure:

Refrain:
Repeat the hymn again:
'To God on high be glory,
and peace on earth to men.'

The Word becomes incarnate,
and yet remains on high;
and cherubim sing anthems
to shepherds from the sky: [Refrain]

While thus they sing your Monarch,
those bright angelic bands,
rejoice, ye vales and mountains,
ye oceans, clap your hands: [Refrain]

Since all he comes to ransom,
by all be he adored,
the Infant born in Bethl'em,
the Saviour and the Lord: [Refrain]
