A Great And Mighty Wonder lyrics:

A great and mighty wonder
A full and holy cure
The Virgin bears the Infant
With virgin honor pure.

To God on high be glory
And peace on earth to men!

The Word becomes incarnate
And yet remains on high
And cherubim sing anthems
To shepherds from the sky.

To God on high be glory
And peace on earth to men!

While thus they sing your Monarch
Those bright angelic bands
Rejoice, ye vales and mountains
Ye oceans, clap your hands.

To God on high be glory
And peace on earth to men!

Since all He comes to ransom
By all be He adored
The Infant born in Bethlehem
The Savior and the Lord.

To God on high be glory
And peace on earth to men!

And idol forms shall perish
And error shall decay
And Christ shall wield His scepter
Our Lord and God for aye.

To God on high be glory
And peace on earth to men!
