Calm On The Listening Ear Of Night
Come Heaven’s Melodious Strains,
Where Wild Judea Stretches Forth
Her Silver Mantled Plains.
Celestial Choirs From Courts Above
Shed Sacred Glories There,
And Angels, With Their Sparkling Lyres,
Make Music On The Air.

The Answering Hills Of Palestine
Send Back The Glad Reply;
And Greet, From All Their Holy Heights,
The Day-Spring From On High.
Over 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
Over Judah’s Sacred Hills!
“Glory To God!” The Sounding Skies
Loud With Their Anthems Ring,
“Peace To The Earth; Good Will To Men,
From Heaven’s Eternal King!”

Light On Thy Hills, Jerusalem!
The Saviour Now Is Born,
And Bright On Bethlehem’s Joyous Plains
Breaks The First Christmas Morn.
And Brightly 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 Tongues Be Mute,
And Christian Hearts Be Cold?
Oh, Catch The Anthem That From Heaven
Over Judah’s Mountains Rolled.
When Burst Upon That Listening Night
The High And Solemn Lay:
“Glory To God, On Earth Be Peace,”
Salvation Comes Today!
