Glade jul, dejlige jul

Language: Danish (Dansk) after the German (Deutsch)

Glade jul, dejlige jul,
engle dale ned i skjul
Hid de flyver med paradisgrønt
hvor de ser, hvad for Gud er kønt
lønlig iblandt os de går,
lønlig iblandt os de går.

Julefred, evige fred
hellig sang med himmelsk lyd
Det er englene, hyrderne så
dengang Herren i krybben lå
evig er englenes sang,
evig er englenes sang.

Fred på jord, fryd på jord
Jesusbarnet blandt os bor!
Engle sjunger om barnet så smukt,
han har himmerigs dør oplukt,
salig er englenes sang,
salig er englenes sang.

Salig fred, himmelsk fred
toner julenat herned!
Engle bringer til store og små
bud om ham, som i krybben lå;
fryd dig, hver sjæl han har frelst!
fryd dig, hver sjæl han har frelst!
