11541. O List To The Notes

1 O list to the notes of the song as it floats
O’er Bethlehem’s beautiful plains;
Yes, hear the glad shout of the joy that rings out
In sweetest of angelic strains.
O fear ye not, shepherds, the wondrous display,
Glad tidings to you they now bring;
There’s born in the city of David today
A Savior, your Lord and your king.

2 To God in the highest all glory and praise,
Both peace and good-will among men;
In songs of salvation our voices we raise,
And Heaven re-echoes again.
Go herald the tidings, go, tell them afar,
Proclaim the glad story of love;
Bright hopes for the perishing nations there are,
Of crowns and of mansions above.
