Hymn/Song Information

THE SONG OF THE ANGELS




Hark! what mean those holy voices,
Sweetly sounding through the skies?
Lo! the angelic host rejoices
Heavenly hallelujahs rise.


Listen to the wondrous story,
Which they chant in hymns of joy;
“Glory in the highest, glory;
Glory be to God most high!


“Peace on earth, good will from heaven,
Reaching far as man is found;
Souls redeemed, and sins forgiven;
Loud our golden harps shall sound.


“Christ is born, the great Anointed;
Heaven and earth His praises sing:
O receive whom God appointed,
For your Prophet, Priest and King.


“Hasten, mortals to adore Him;
Learn His Name and taste His joy;
Till in heaven you sing before Him,
Glory be to God most high!”


Let us learn the wondrous story
Of our great Redeemer’s birth;
Spread the brightness of His glory
Till it cover all the earth.


---Alternative verses---


Hear them tell the wondrous story,
Hear them chant in hymns of joy;
“Glory in the highest, glory;
Glory be to God most high!


“Haste, ye mortals to adore Him;
Learn His Name and taste His joy;
Till in heaven ye sing before Him,
Glory be to God most high!”
