Verse 1:
G        G/B            C          D
Glorious light, see the dawn of salvation;
G         G/B            C                D        Em
Angels in white fill the skies with their wondrous song, 
 D        C          G/B          Am
Awakening earth with news of His birth: 
         G/B         C  D/C  C/D  D
Join the hymn of the highest heavens.
Verse 2: 
G            G/B              C           D
Long has the world fought the song of the angels;
G        G/B      C            D       Em
Heavenly music is drowned by a warring world.
    D            C           G/B          Am
Yet hope burns a light that shatters the night:
          G/B          C    D/C  C/D   D
Turn your heart to the call of   glo - ry.
   Chorus:
   G                   B/D♯
   Glory to God in the highest!
   Em       D      C       D
   Peace to men on earth.
   G                       B/D♯
   Come and adore Him with wonder;
   C               D          G
   Christ, Lord of heaven and earth.
Verse 3: 
G          G/B        C         D
There is a day all creation has longed for,
G           G/B           C             D       Em
When all of time has been spent and the Lord returns.
    D            C        G/B       Am
His song we'll repeat as heaven completes
         G/B             C    D/C   C/D  D
Promised peace that will fill the   na - tions.

GLORIOUS LIGHT, SEE THE DAWN OF SALVATION
Angels in white fill the skies with their wondrous song,
Awakening earth with news of His birth:
Join the hymn of the highest heavens.

Long has the world fought the song of the angels;
Heavenly music is drowned by a warring world.
Yet hope burns a light, that shatters the night:
Turn your heart to the call of glory.

Glory to God in the highest!
Peace to men on earth.
Come and adore Him with wonder;
Christ, Lord of Heaven and earth.

There is a day all creation has longed for,
When all of time has been spent and the Lord returns.
His song we'll repeat as heaven completes
Promised peace that will fill the nations.
