O'er the blue depths of Galilee
There comes a holier calm,

And Sharon waves, in solemn praise,
Her silent groves of palm.

"Glory to God!" The lofty strain
The realm of ether fills:

How sweeps the song of solemn joy
O'er Judah's sacred hills!

"Glory to God!" The sounding skies
Loud with their anthems ring:
"Peace on the earth; good-will to men,
From Heaven's eternal king!"

Light on thy hills, Jerusalem!

The Saviour now is born:

More bright on Bethlehem's joyous plains Breaks the first Christmas morn;

And brighter on Moriah's brow,

Crowned with her temple-spires, Which first proclaim the new-born light, Clothed with its Orient fires.

This day shall Christian lips be mute,
And Christian hearts be cold?
Oh, catch the anthem that from Heaven
O'er Judah's mountains rolled!
When nightly burst from seraph-harps
The high and solemn lay,—

"Glory to God! on earth be peace;
Salvation comes to-day!
