Hymn/Song Information

Sweetly sang the angels In the clear calm night




Sweetly sang the angels
In the clear, calm night,
On their white wings resting
In the heavenly light;
Sent by God the Father,
Who our love has sought,
Unto men and children
Tidings glad they brought.

Children, blend your voices,
In sweet concord sing;
Hail the Lordís anointed,
Christ, the childrenís king.


To the gentle shepherds
It was first revealed,
Watching ímid the darkness
In the open field.
That in Davidís city,
On that holy morn,
In a lowly stable
Christ, our king, was born.

Children, blend your voices,
In sweet concord sing;
Hail the Lordís anointed,
Christ, the childrenís king.


Gladdened by the tidings,
Hastily they sped
To the crowded city
And the manger bed;
There they found the Savior
With His mother mild;
Him they loved and worshiped,
Though a lowly child.

Children, blend your voices,
In sweet concord sing;
Hail the Lordís anointed,
Christ, the childrenís king.


In His simple childhood,
And His sacred youth,
All His ways were holy,
All His ways were truth;
For our sins He suffered,
And, throí grief untold,
All His lambs He purchased
For His sacred fold.

Children, blend your voices,
In sweet concord sing;
Hail the Lordís anointed,
Christ, the childrenís king.


Jesus, meek and gentle,
Make us like to Thee;
Loving, true, and tender,
Thou wouldst have us be;
Blessings rich and holy,
On this festal day,
Pour Thou out upon us,
Lord we humbly pray.

Children, blend your voices,
In sweet concord sing;
Hail the Lordís anointed,
Christ, the childrenís king.
