1 A great and mighty wonder:
redemption drawing near!
the virgin bears the infant,
the prince of peace is here!
Repeat the hymn again:
'To God on high be glory,
and peace on earth.Amen.'

2 The Word becomes incarnate
and yet remains on high;
the shepherds hear the anthem
as glory fills the sky
Repeat the hymn again:

3 The angels sing the story:
rejoice, O distant lands!
you valleys, forests, mountains,
and oceans, clap your hands!
Repeat the hymn again:

4 He comes to save all nations:
let all now hear his word!
approach and bring him worship,
the saviour and the Lord!
Repeat the hymn again:
