The Worcester Christmas Carol

Author: William H. Havergal, 1793-1870 Hymnal: The Cyber Hymnal #7613 Hymnal Title: The Cyber Hymnal First Line: How grand and how bright Lyrics: 1. How grand and how bright That wonderful night, When angels to Bethlehem came! They burst forth like fires, They struck their gold lyres, And mingled their song with the flame. 2. The shepherds were mazed, The pretty lambs gazed At darkness thus turned into light: No voice was there heard From man, beast or bird, So sudden and solemn the sight. 3. And then, when the sound reechoed around, The hills and the dales all awoke: The moon and the stars Stopped their fiery cars, And listened while Gabriel spoke: 4. I bring you, said he, From the glorious Three, Good tidings to gladden mankind; The Savior is born, But He lies forlorn In a manger, as soon you will find. 5. At mention of this, (The source of all bliss,) The angels sang loudly and long; The soared to the sky, Beyond mortal eye, But left us the words of their song: 6. All glory to God, Who laid by His rod, To smile on the world through His Son: And peace be on earth, For this wonderful birth Wonderful conquests has won; 7. And good will to man, Though his life’s a span, And his thoughts so evil and wrong; Then pray, Christians, pray; But let Christmas day Have your sweetest and holiest song. Here are Havergal’s original lyrics for stanzas where, due to irregularities in meter, they do not fully fit the music: 1. "I bring you," said he, "From the glorious Three, Good tidings to gladden mankind; The Savior is born, But He lies all forlorn In a manger, as soon you will find." 2. "All glory to God," Who laid by His rod, To smile on the world through His Son: "And peace be on earth," For this wonderful birth Most wonderful conquests has won; 3. "And good will to man," Though his life’s but a span, And his thoughts so evil and wrong; Then pray, Christians, pray; But let Christmas day Have your sweetest and holiest song.
