Far, Far Away on Judea's Plains

This was our opening hymn today in sacrament. I made "men" inclusive by changing it to "all" and I added the Goddess. You have to do some syllable-moving in the chorus, but it's doable. I like it!

1. Far, far away on Judea’s plains,
Shepherds of old heard the joyous strains:

2. Sweet are these strains of redeeming love,
Message of mercy from heav’n above:

3. Lords, with the angels we too would rejoice;
Help us to sing with the heart and voice:

4. Hasten the time when, from ev’ry clime,
All shall unite in the strains sublime:

Glory to God, Glory to Goddess,
Glory to God and Godess;
Peace on earth, goodwill to all;
Peace on earth, goodwill to all!
