Scripture: Matthew 1:21
1 To God be glory, Throughout the whole wide earth;
Go tell the story Of Jesus' humble birth.
Church bells are ringing The trumpet thrills with song.
To praise God, singing With joy in God's own Son.
We once were dying, But now salvation's come!
2 Come, let us gather, In ev'ry farm and town.
Sing out together In choruses of sound.
Our voices singing A joyous Christmastide.
For peace is winging To earth, both far and wide.
For Christ is bringing His peace to sorrow's side.
3 Out in the winter Amid the cold and ice
God's heaven glistens A star announces Christ.
It shines to tell us That we will see God's face.
We'll see it glorious When we have won the race.
And Christ will raise us To live with him in grace.
