Like Abraham centuries before, the angels, a mulititude of them, praised God and said,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!
The shepherds glorified and praised God too! The young parents sacrificed; The prophet Simeon blessed God; Anna the prophetess gave thanks to the Lord.
For those who looked for redemption in Jerusalem, Messiah has come!
What a day of rejoicing His second coming will produce!
“When we all see Jesus, we’ll sing and shout the victory!”
1 When We All Get To Heaven. Words by Eliza Hewitt, ca. 1898, Music by Emily Divine Wilson, ca. 1898
