Lyrics

The an­gels sang one star­ry night,
Good news for you, good news for me;
They filled the sky with glo­ry bright,
Good news for you and me.

Refrain

Hark! hark! hark!
Good news for you and me;
For Je­sus came that star­ry night,
Good news for you and me.

Glad mu­sic fell from harps of gold,
Good news for you, good news for me;
The sweet­est sto­ry ever told,
Good news for you and me.

Refrain

He loves us more than we can say,
Good news for you, good news for me;
He lives for us this Christ­mas day,
Good news for you and me.
