We Greet This Happy Season

We greet this happy season,
This blessed Christmas time:
With songs of joy and gladness
And merry, merry chime,
For Christ the Lord of Glory
Is born this Holy night,
And angels bear the tidings
On wings of Heav’nly light.
Peace on earth,
Good-will from Heav’n to men,
Peace on earth
Good-will from Heav’n to men,
Good-will from Heav’n to men,
All Glory be to God on High.

While shepherds watched their flocks
On Bethl’hem’s plain that winter night;
An Angel of the Lord came down
Amid a flood of light.
“Fear not,” the Angel said,
“New light I’ve come to shed
For unto you is born
In Bethl’hem town this blessed day
A Saviour, Christ the Lord,”
And He shall take our sins away:
And a host of Angels swelled the strain,
“Glory be to god on high,
And on earth, Peace,
Good-will to men.” [Refrain]
