Angels We Have Heard

from Good News by Ordinary Time



Angels we have heard
Music by Peter La Grand, words by Peter La Grand, Jill McFadden, and Ben Keyes

I bring news, Good news of greatest joy
It’s for you, for all the weary world
Rest has come. Peace is here.

Do not fear, O do not turn away
He’s your King, the one for whom you wait
God’s own son, Christ the Lord

Angels we have heard on high
Singing sweetly through the night
Tonight, tonight
Your savior is born

For to us, to us a child is born
For to us, to us a son is giv’n
Counselor. Mighty king.

And he will, will reign on David’s throne
His Kingdom, it Shall have no end
a light has come—our hope is born

Awake, o you slumbering earth
Deaf from sin and dumb with age
The time has come for joy, O earth
The end in view to all our weeping

Greet him and be greeted, soul.
