Angels We Have Heard on High

10 Dec

This is the 4th post in our series of Christmas reflections on traditional carols. May you be encouraged to reflect on these timeless words as you hear them and sing them over the next few weeks.

Angels We Have Heard on High

Verse 1: We have heard God’s messengers making a glorious declaration over all the earth! The mountains even join in! All the earth sings about Him!

Chorus: Give God the highest glory! Give God the highest glory!

Verse 2: You lowly shepherds, why are you so excited? What are you going on and on about? What is the good news that you’re so eager to sing about? Tell me!

Chorus: Give God the highest glory! Give God the highest glory!

Verse 3: Come to this backwards little village and witness the birth of the Promised One whom the angels are excited about! Get over here and worship Him in humility, this Promised One, this Child-King!

Chorus: Give God the highest glory! Give God the highest glory!

Verse 4: Can you believe it? This little one–the one whom all the fuss is about–is being laid in a feeding trough for livestock! Let us join together with the whole family of God to love, honor, and worship Him!

Chorus: Give God the highest glory! Give God the highest glory!

 

May we join with the angels in declaring the glory of God in the person of Jesus Christ this Christmas season!
