Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

To God Be the Glory (hymn, 8:45 AM)

The Composed Song

1. The Lord Himself shall give unto you a sign

Lo a virgin shall conceive and bear a son

And thou shall even call his name Immanuel

For he ‘ll save his people even from their sins

Refrain:

It’s fulfilled, It’s fulfilled

God’s promise is fulfilled

It’s fulfilled, It’s fulfilled

The promise of a virgin birth

Let’s join heavenly hosts

To praise God by saying

Glory to God in highest and

On earth his peace


2. For even unto us a child also is born

Unto us a Son hath also been given

And government shall even be upon his shoulder

Increase of his government and peace shall not end

Refrain:


3. His name even shall be called the mighty God

Wonderful, Counselor, the everlasting Father

The Lion of Judah and the Prince of Peace

The alpha an’ Omega; beginning and the end

Refrain:


4. Angel Gabriel was sent from God to Nazareth

To a virgin named Mary espoused to Joseph

To her the angel said peace be unto thee

For you ‘re highly favored the Lord is with you

Refrain:


5. And Mary was disturbed by the saying of the man

Asking herself what kind of greeting is this?

Also the angel says bless’d thou among women

You ‘ve found favor with God and thou should fear not

Refrain:


6. Behold thou shall even conceive in thy womb

And bring forth a son whom you shall call Jesus

He ‘ll be exceeding great, the Son of the Highest

The Lord shall; give to him throne of David his father

Refrain:


7. This Son shall ever reign over house of Jacob

Yea of his kingdom there shall also be no end

For this the Lord hath purported ‘ven to do

Even from the beginning of everything

Refrain:


8. And Mary was puzzled about what the man says,

Replying the angel how this would be done

For I have never known a man all my life

Please tell me how I would conceive in my womb

Refrain:


9. The angel answered and said unto her

The Holy Ghost shall also come upon thee

The power of the highest ‘ll overshadow thee

You ‘ll give birth to Holy One called the Son of God

Refrain:


10. Be it unto me according to thy word

Says Mary to angel who speaketh with her

With God nothing shall also be impossible

This the angel says as he departed her

Refrain:


11. Thereafter Mary was found to be heavy with a child

Even from the Holy Ghost who overshadowed her

When Joseph a just man discovers also this

He privily wanted to put her away

Refrain:


12. As he thought about these, the angel appeared to him

While he sleepeth even in his dream heard

The angel saying to him that he should fear not

Even to take Mary his wife to himself

Refrain:


13. When he also wakes up he went to his wife

Took her to himself to remove her shame

Catering for the Holy One even in her womb

Whom she hath conceived when the Highest overshadowed her

Refrain:


14. Augustus Caeser had issued a decree

That census of everyone even be taken

Joseph and Mary his wife went to Bethlehem

To register their names according to the law

Refrain:


15. When they were in Bethlehem her time even came

That she should put to bed the child in her womb

And she delivered her first son in a manger

Whom she hath wrapped with cloth for no room in the inn

Refrain:


16. The agelong promise of God is fulfilled

Angel and multitude of heavenly host

Give praises to God with things on earth

Sayin’ glory to God in highest an’ on earth His peace.

Refrain:
