Far, Far Away on Judea’s Plains

John Menzies Macfarlane(1833-1892), 1869

Far, far away on Judea’s plains,
Shepherds of old
heard the joyous strains:
Glory to God, Glory to God,
Glory to God in the highest:
Peace on earth,
good-will to men;
Peace on earth,
good-will to men!

Sweet are these strains
of redeeming love,
Message of mercy from heaven above:
Glory to God, Glory to God,
Glory to God in the highest:
Peace on earth,
good-will to men;
Peace on earth,

Lord, with the angels
we too would rejoice,
Help us to sing with
the heart and voice:
Glory to God, Glory to God,
Glory to God in the highest:
Peace on earth,
good-will to men;
Peace on earth,
good-will to men!

Hasten the time when,
from every clime,
Men shall unite
in the strains sublime:
Glory to God, Glory to God,
Glory to God in the highest:
Peace on earth,
good-will to men;
Peace on earth,
good-will to men!
