Sing G-L-O-R-Y

This song spells out the nativity story. Two versions: gentle/reflective, and upbeat celebration

Baby J-E-S-U-S is born this day.
Sing G-L-O-R-Y Halleluya
Go spread the happy news to all the E-A-R-T-H
Sing G-L-O-R-Y Halleluya
Sing G-L-O-R-Y this day.

Angels, like grandmas hovered R-O-U-N-D … Sing G-L-O-R-Y…
They couldn’t wait to squish the Prince of P-E-A-C-E …

Telescoping magi rode their C-A-M-E-L’s …
The star led them right to a lowly S-T-A-L-L …

Angel songs set shepherds on a Q-U-E-S-T …
They went to see the babe with all their S-H-E-E-P …

Set your fancy dishes on the T-A-B-L-E …
Call neighbors far and wide to join the F-E-A-S-T …

Baby J-E-S-U-S is born this day …
Good will and peace will be the song for Y-O-U and me …


And here’s the uptempo version:


Lyrics for up-beat version

Baby J-E-S-U-S is born on Christmas Day.
Sing G-L-O-R-Y Halleluya
Go spread the happy news to all the E-A-R-T-H
Sing G-L-O-R-Y Halleluya

Re- J-O-I-C-E, re J-O-I-C-E
Sing G-L-O-R-Y Halleluya
Re- J-O-I-C-E, re J-O-I-C-E
Sing G-L-O-R-Y Halleluya

Angels, like grandmas hovered R-O-U-N-D …
They couldn’t wait to squeeze the Prince of P-E-A-C-E …

Telescoping magi rode their C-A-M-E-L’s …
The star led them right to a lowly S-T-A-L-L …

Angel songs set shepherds on a Q-U-E-S-T …
They went to see the babe with all their S-H-E-E-P …

Set your fancy dishes on the T-A-B-L-E …
Dial up the neighbors for a P-A-R-T-Y

Baby J-E-S-U-S is born this day …
Good will and peace will be the song for Y-O-U and me …

Alt lyrics for upbeat version: here are some verses telling the transfiguration story, thanks to Ben Masters for the idea, and for leading the collaboration on co-writing these verses:

When Jesus and his pals were on that mountain T-O-P
Sing G-L-O-R-Y, Halleluya
You should-a seen him dazzling full of L-I-G-H-T
Sing G-L-O-R-Y, Halleluya
Re-J-O-I-C-E, Re-J-O-I-C-E,
Sing G-L-O-R-Y, Halleluya
Re-J-O-I-C-E, Re-J-O-I-C-E,
Sing G-L-O-R-Y, Halleluya

Then Moses and Elijah joined that P-A-R-T-Y …
They even heard a V-O-I-C-E up in the sky …

Come shine, Brother Jesus, won’t you S-H-I-N-E …
Prepare the way for justice, love and P-E-A-C-E …
