Glory Be To God - A Christmas Hymn

As we approach the Christmas season, I thought I would share with you my favourite Christmas hymn. The original words were penned by Charles Wesley, the music and some additional words are the work of Bob Kauflin.

I know the time leading up to Christmas can be hectic, but I encourage you to take a moment to listen and celebrate the coming of God as man.


VERSE 1
Glory be to God on high
Let peace on earth descend
God comes down before our eyes
To Bethlehem
God invisible appears
Endless ages wrapped in years
He has come who cannot change
And Jesus is His name

VERSE 2
Emptied of His majesty
He comes in human form
Being’s source begins to be
And God is born
All our griefs He’ll gladly share
All our sins He’ll fully bear
He will cover our disgrace
And suffer in our place

VERSE 3
Let the joyful news ring out
The Prince of Peace proclaim
Lift your heart and voice to shout
Immanuel’s name
God has kept His promises
What a work of grace this is
Son of Mary, chosen One
The Lamb of God has come

BRIDGE
Hosanna, hosanna
The Lamb of God has come
Hosanna, hosanna
He is the promised One
