Glory Be To God On High Chords
from "The Soul Felt Its Worth"

C       Em                  Dm

Glory be to God on high,

         F               G              C

And peace on earth descend;

                      Em                           Dm

God comes down, He bows the sky, 

         F                 G            F

And shows Himself our friend. 

                  G                 F

God the invisible appears,

                 G                         C

God the blest, the great I Am, 

                Em                   Dm

Sojourns in this vale of tears,

         F       G        C

And Jesus is His name.



C           Em               Dm

Him the angels all adored,

          F             G            C

Their Maker and their King;

            Em                          Dm

Tidings of their humbled Lord 

         F             G           F

They now to mortals bring.

                G                 F

Emptied of His majesty,

             G                         C

Of His dazzling glories shorn,

             Em                        Dm

Being’s Source begins to be,

        F             G         C

And God Himself is born.


C              Em                  Dm

See the eternal Son of God,

    F          G          C

A mortal Son of Man,

               Em                  Dm

Dwelling in an earthly clod 

             F                 G            F

Whom heaven cannot contain.

                   G                               F

Stand amazed, ye heavens, at this;

              G                             C

See the Lord of earth and skies 

                Em                  Dm

Humbled to the dust He is,

       F       G           C

And in a manger lies.



C           Em                    Dm

We, the sons of men, rejoice,

        F             G                C

The Prince of Peace proclaim,

               Em                           Dm

With the angels lift up your voice,

         F              G             F

And shout Immanuel’s name.

                   G                           F

Knees and hearts to Him we bow;

            G                          C

Of our flesh, and of our bone,

         Em                  Dm

Jesus is our Brother now,

         F          G         C

And God is all our own.
