Description:
Christmas carol written by Scottish born Mormon Pioneer, John Menzies Macfarlane in 1869 in St. George, Utah. He composed this carol for his church choir, using a pump (reed) organ. He also composed the lyrics:

Far, far away on Judea’s plains,
Shepherds of old heard the joyous strains:
Glory to God, Glory to God,
Glory to God in the highest.
Peace on earth, good will to men!
Peace on earth, good will to men!

Sweet are these strains of redeeming love,
Message of mercy from heaven above,
Glory to God, Glory to God,
Glory to God in the highest.
Peace on earth, good will to men!
Peace on earth, good will to men!

Lord, with the angels we too would rejoice,
Help us to sing with the heart and voice,
Glory to God, Glory to God,
Glory to God in the highest.
Peace on earth, good will to men!
Peace on earth, good will to men!

Hasten the time when, from every clime,
Men shall unite in the strains sublime,
Glory to God, Glory to God,
Glory to God in the highest.
Peace on earth, good will to men!
Peace on earth, good will to men!

I have not found this carol on CB, so I recorded it on AVO's Dutch Harmonium. The second verse has a lot of bass, for which I used the pedals, but it sounds like what old reed organs sound like when you use the bass coupler.
