Hymns Of The Greek Church by John Brownlie

Bethlehem rejoices,

tr., John Brownlie

6,5,6,5 D

Doxa en hupsistois theo

By St. John of Damascus, 780 A.D.

I

Bethlehem rejoices,

Hark the voices clear,

Singing in the starlight

Nearer and more near.

Unto God be glory,

Peace to men be given,

This His will who dwelleth

In the heights of heaven.

II

Heaven can not contain Him,

Nor the bounds of earth,

Yet, O Glorious Mystery!

Virgin gives Him birth.

Unto God be glory,

Peace to men be given,

This His will who dwelleth

In the heights of heaven.

III

Now the light ariseth

In the darkened skies,

Now the proud are humbled

And the lowly rise.

Unto God be glory,

Peace to men be given,

This His will who dwelleth

In the heights of heaven.
