Lyrics
Verse 1
A great and mighty wonder, 
a full and holy cure! 
the Virgin bears the Infant 
with virgin-honour pure: 
 
Chorus
Repeat the hymn again: 
'To God on high be glory, 
and peace on earth to men.' 
 
Verse 2
The Word becomes incarnate, 
and yet remains on high; 
and cherubim sing anthems 
to shepherds from the sky: 
 
Chorus
Repeat the hymn again: 
'To God on high be glory, 
and peace on earth to men.' 
 
Verse 3
While thus they sing your Monarch, 
those bright angelic bands, 
rejoice, ye vales and mountains, 
ye oceans, clap your hands: 
 
Chorus
Repeat the hymn again: 
'To God on high be glory, 
and peace on earth to men.' 
 
Verse 4
Since all he comes to ransom, 
by all be he adored, 
the Infant born in Bethl'em, 
the Saviour and the Lord: 
 
Chorus
Repeat the hymn again: 
'To God on high be glory, 
and peace on earth to men.'
