Long Ago A Shining Throng Lyrics
1. Long ago a shining throng,
Thrilled the midnight air with song;
For the Savior promised long,
Lay in Bethl'em's stall.
Over Judah's silent plain,
Sweetly rang the joyous strain;
Of His birth, Who yet shall reign,
As King of all.
Praise Him, angels bright,
Praise Him, stars of light,
Tell His wondrous might,
Who today was born.
Shout, O shout His Name,
Gladly now proclaim,
How to save He came,
This happy morn.
2. Mighty God and Prince of Peace,
Never shall His glory cease;
But forever more increase,
Till He rules alone.
All the earth shall own His sway,
Crowns and kingdoms pass away;
Kings to him shall tribute pay,
Upon the throne. [Refrain]
3. Sing, ye heav'nly hosts on high,
Sons of men, with joy reply,
Sound His praise through earth and sky,
In His love rejoice.
Let the swelling [Chorus] ring,
Hail Him Lord and crown Him King;
Of His pow'r forever sing,
With heart and voice. [Refrain]
