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.

Kenyon, Archibald, was born at Athol, Warren County, New York, July 31, 1813, and entered the Baptist ministry in 1838. He has written a large number of hymns, several of which are found in the Royal Diadem, Pure Gold, Our Glad Hosanna, Glad Refrain, and other American Sunday Schools and Mission hymn-books. "Jesus, hear me when I pray" (Divine Help desired) in Our Glad Hosanna, 1882, is a good example of his work. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)… Go to person page >
