Hymn/Song Information

Mortals awake with angels join And chant




Mortals, awake, with angels join,
And chant the solemn lay,
Joy, love, and gratitude combine,
|: To hail the auspicious day. :|


In Heaven the rapturous song began,
And sweet seraphic fire
Through all the shining legions ran,
|: And strung and tuned the lyre. :|


Swift through the vast expanse it flew,
And loud the echo rolled,
The theme, the song,
the joy, was new—
|: ’Twas more than Heaven could hold. :|


Down through the portals of the sky
The impetuous torrent ran;
And angels flew, with eager joy,
|: To bear the news to man. :|


Hark! the cherubic armies shout,
And glory leads the song:
Good will and peace
are heard throughout
|: The harmonious heav’nly throng. :|


With joy the chorus we repeat,
“Glory to God on high!”
Good will and peace are now complete,
|: Jesus was born to die. :|


Hail, Prince of Life, forever hail!
Redeemer, Brother, Friend!
Though earth, and time, and life shall fail
|: Thy praise shall never end. :|
