160R What Means This Glory Round Our Feet

Meter, L.M., Tune, ERFURT (VON HIMMEL HOCH)

1. “What means this glory round our feet,”
The ma-gi mused, “more bright than morn!”
And voic-es chant-ed clear and sweet,
“The roy-al child of peace is born!”

2. “What means this star,” the shep-herds said,
“That bright-ens through the rock-y wall?”
And an-gels an-swering o-ver-head,
sang “Peace on earth, good will to all”

3. All round a-bout our feet shall shine
a light like that the ma-gi saw,
if we our lov-ing wills in-cline
to that sweet life which is the law.

4. So shall we learn to un-der-stand
the sim-ple faith of shep-herds then,
and kind-ly clasp-ing all in all,
sing “Peace on earth, good will to all."

5. And they who to their child-hood cling,
and keep at eve the faith of morn,
shall dai-ly hear the an-gels sing,
"The roy-al child of peace is born."
