Midst our noise of daily living

Metre: 87 87 + refrainTune: Iris (Angels from the realms of glory)

Midst our noise of daily living,
Angels sing in purest light
Of God’s birth to all, now giving
Hope and love to human night.
Gloria in excelsis Deo!

In the sky a star appearing
Telling of our Saviour’s birth:
Leave all else! – its light now steering
Humankind to Jesus’ birth.

All we have will change and perish;
Without God our lives will drift.
Yield your powers, true love now cherish:
Give your heart – the costliest gift!
