8332. All The Skies Tonight Sing O'er Us

1 All the skies tonight sing o’er us!
Sweet and far, star to star,
Maketh solemn chorus.
Time the midnight blest is telling
When our Lord, God the Word,
Made with us His dwelling.

2 Glory in the highest Heaven!
And again, unto men,
Their souls’ peace be given!
All our wrong by Him is righted
In whose birth Heav’n and earth
Stand for aye united.

3 Sons of men, let nothing grieve you!
Evermore Heaven’s door
Widens to receive you!
Brothers of the Babe eternal,
In His name come and claim
Grace and bliss supernal.
