This rendition of Charles Wesley’s lyrics Glory Be To God On High features melody and vocals by Nathan Drake of Reawaken Hymns.

The lyrics:
Glory be to God on high,
And peace on earth descend;
God comes down, He bows the sky,
And shows Himself our friend.
God the invisible appears,
God the blest, the great I Am,
Sojourns in this vale of tears,
And Jesus is His name.

Him the angels all adored,
Their Maker and their King;
Tidings of their humbled Lord
They now to mortals bring.
Emptied of His majesty,
Of His dazzling glories shorn,
Being’s Source begins to be,
And God Himself is born.

​See the eternal Son of God,
A mortal Son of Man,
Dwelling in an earthly clod
Whom heaven cannot contain.
Stand amazed, ye heavens, at this;
See the Lord of earth and skies
Humbled to the dust He is,
And in a manger lies.

We, the sons of men, rejoice,
The Prince of Peace proclaim,
With the angels lift up your voice,
And shout Immanuel’s name.
Knees and hearts to Him we bow;
Of our flesh, and of our bone,
Jesus is our Brother now,
And God is all our own.
